Let's see... spiders, snakes, bees (cause I'm allergic), heights and flying. Complete phobia of flying, don't mind roller coasters cause by the time I realize I'm at the top I'm already back down at the bottom! Ferris Wheels though scare the crap outta me. They just are to high and move to slow. Bridges and cliffs/mountains etc. are fine so long as I'm not on the edge looking down.

Oh and having someone try and take my gun away!

hmm lets see:

black hornets (allergic)
any bug that bites/stings
the fact that there's a two time sex offender living in my neighborhood

i think that sums it up :)

I want to add to my list if thats ok.
Having a stroke
That scares the crap out of me. Having your mind still know whats going on but your body quits cooperating. One of the many reasons I quit smoking.

For the person scared of guns, I'd be more than happy to arrange a safe, controlled experience for you, if you were ever in the states. Firearms are very fascinating tools, and very fun, once you learn how to handle them safely.

Bugs do not scare me(quite the opposite). I have pet bugs. Many species of Cockroach are just amazingly colorful and beautiful.

Worms freak me the hell out, though.

I wouldn't say I'm afraid of Democrats per se, but we shall see soon.

Riding still scares me a bit.

Large crowds of people. (I'm working on this one.)

Dark plausible scenarios of "what ifs".

I am terrified of vomiting too. I don't know why it scares me so much, but just the thought of doing it makes heart race

LadyDreamer - I'm not scared of guns when they're handled safely, but I sure am scared of guns in general and when the public have possession of them! The only time I have ever seen them here in Britain are with the police at Heathrow Airport. I can't remember if there was an armed police presence during the security stuff for getting into the House of Lords; there might have been given it's Parliament. Smaller airports such as Cardiff and Bristol don't have armed police.

However, it really does scare me in a deep-down, fundamental way, to think of the general public owning guns and ... having them around. I see the dangers - having them near children, accidentally going off, being used when upset and not acting rationally.

Guns can be fun and safe. My dad owns a very old air rifle that can't quite penetrate an apple, and I've shot it, and it's fun in its own way. But wide distribution and ownership of guns will always frighten me. When I see guns, my instinct is to want to get away from them. Normally I see the police as friendly and helpful; if I'm walking back through Cardiff late at night I'll happily walk alongside a police officer and talk to them and so on. But seeing them with guns? I just want to stay well away. It's scary!

Confrontation can be scary but I'm better at that these days. I used to dislike public speaking and phone calls a bit; now I can handle both with ease as I have debated in the House of Lords in front of the Lord Speaker xD
