I just want to start off by saying that I believe in a persons right to bear arms and all that it entails. I believe in teaching my children the right way to handle guns and the respect that should go with it. My issue isnt really with my children being around guns. Its that I am not comfortable around them. The thought of even shooting a gun makes me cringe. I was born to parents in the Ministry...LOL. So usually Pastors and church piano players dont have guns in their home. I remember my brother having a 22 when he was a teen, but it wasnt of any interest to me. I guess my being female has really hindered my interest in guns, but dh wants one. His brother has a few and he just wants one. I dont know why. He says its because we are moving to the woods and we might have wild animals. I dont know how much truth is in that. So I told him I wasnt comfortable with this.

My husband recently told me he wants a gun for protection. This is something I am absolutely not comfortable with. I do not feel safe
g a gun in my house with my child. Right now the subject has been dropped, but I don't know what I'll do if he brings it up again. I would feel differently if he were a hunter or used a gun regularly. I think gun safety is taught more effectively when the parents actually use guns. The thought of a gun sitting in a box in the closet for my son to stumble across is something I can't risk.
I hope you get some good advice because I don't know what to do either.
