  •  Should we not consider the thing on which the (0+ / 0-)

    sufferer fixates?

    Does the object of one's obsession mean something?

    Weapons are dangerous. Establishing a fetish therearound seems like danger would be a component of the disease.

    What I really wanted to say was, "Coins don't kill people, coins are exchanged for guns which kill people,"  but you told us not to do that.

      Italian stilettos,  is that some sort of unhealthy obsession?

      •  I don't imagine shoes that old are safe to wear. (1+ / 0-)

        But that is indeed my question.
        If you collect old high heeled shoes, is that indicative of some desire to fall backward in time.

        If you collected old knifes for example, maybe you are attracted to danger but want to keep it at a safe distance.

        My real question is whether there is a difference between collecting modern functioning assault weapons, and old time knives, or even books.

        Lets say you have two neighbors. One collect Beany Babies (tm). The other collects guns.  Whom do you invite to tea, and who do you let down with the news that you only have enough shortbread for one guest?

        •  my case I would tell beanie baby person (1+ / 0-)

          not to  wait for an invite.  Have you taken a close look at those things?

          •  Only through a high-powered rifle scope. (0+ / 0-)

            That was snark too.

            I think I still own a couple.  "Peace Bear" is what they renamed the one modeled after Jerry Garcia.

            So, zero guns and maybe 2 beanie babies.
