Whose rights trump in this situation?

My husband wants a gun.. has wanted one since he found out that we were moving to Texas. (he doesn't trust many of the locals in the area..) I don't want one in the house. 

So, does his right to own a gun trump my right to feel safe in my home? (I don't feel safe with guns in the house)

 I feel this is more of a relationship thing than a right thing. I hope you guys come to a happy compromise. :) And I hope I made sense, lol.

Compromise is a good thing. We have a lot of guns but the guns are kept in the gun safe and the ammo is kept in a lock box in another area. That way even if for some reason someone was to gain access to one they aren't going to get the other.

also, the main reason for my question was that when he went to buy it, the first place we stopped was very disturbing (a sign that said the only good liberal is a dead one was hanging over the door)

DH said that I really didn't want one in the house (making conversation) and the man said that DH's 2nd Amendment rights trumped my rights to not have one.

I wouldn't want a gun in my home either, so I'd make sure I win, lol.

 What a dumb asshole. What did your husband say?

make him lock his gun in a gun safe and keep the ammnition separate from the gun. Guns aren't unsafe if you store and handle them properly - you may need a gun in texas most of the folks there are wackadoodle lol

yes the bullets should be somewhere that you can not get to them if that is a concern.
