Hoplophobia is a pejorative neologism originally coined to describe an "irrational aversion to weapons, as opposed to justified apprehension about those who may wield them." It is sometimes used more generally to describe the "fear of weapons" or the "highly salient danger of these weapons "  or the "fear of armed citizens".

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

And I thought it was a fear of rabbits.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.C. S. Lewis
