    unfortunately, its ignorant & incorrect to accuse someone of hoplophobia, simply because they dislike or even fear guns.

    Hoplophobia is the fear of WEAPONS, not guns. That includes knives, clubs, tazers, mace, etc etc.

    As previously documented all of the civilian police were phased out by the end of the 19th century.

    Sure glad to know I've reached my "gold!" I knew there had to be a nugget in this thread somewhere!

    The turtledude made a claim he couldn't back up. If he had owned up to it, there would have been no need to prove his claim was false.
