So I don't really know how to approach this so here it goes. I've been into guns most of my life, I'm not a hunter (don't have anything against it and I want to go, but just never had the opportunity) I just enjoy them and like to shoot. I do also believe that it's every responsible citizens right to own firearms and protect their loved ones and property from harm. I'd like to think I'm not a crazy person, but I know some one out there would disagree. I've been dating my girlfriend for almost 4 years now, we met our senior year in high school and have been dating ever sense. I've gotten more into guns in the past couple of years but it's something that she knew I had an interest in. She has no problems with guns, she believes that we have the right to own them and protect out selves with them. However she doesn't see it the way that I do, or the way that others here would. She's against me getting a GWL and carrying concealed around her and she gets uncomfortable when she comes over to my place because I keep a loaded gun by the bed. She's grown up around guns, her grandfather hunted, as did her dad and she tells me she shot a gun before. But it's like she gets nervous around my guns even when they're unloaded and hidden away. I think that she just doesn't understand how safe guns are, and that unless it's a highly tampered with or antique gun, they cannot just go off without the pull of a trigger. (For reference, I have a Remington 870, AR-15, and Sig SP2022). I'd like to take her to the range and show her but she never wants to go. I'd also like to make note that this isn't a deal breaker, it's not like we're about go to splitsville because of this, I just wish she'd be more comfortable with it all. I'm sure you guys have been in similar situations and I wanted to get your advice. As far as the GWL goes, I've tried to tell her about protecting my self and her but she doesn't seem to buy it. I think she grew up in a "gun safe" house, were all the guns were stored away in a locked "safe" (read: display case) at all times and sometimes her dad would keep a .22 revolver in his sock drawer and a slap jack in the night stand. I've tried not to force the issue, and anytime my friends go to the range I invite her but never pressure her to do it. But eventually something is going to happen because I plan on getting my GWL and I plan on carrying in the near future. I'd much rather me tell her I'm carrying then her to find out on her own. If you have any questions let me know, and mods feel free to move this. I wasn't really sure where it should go.
