I agree that there is a need to pick your battles... This is one I have chosen. I cannot truly win the battle with force, as I want the alliance of the "foe." A defeated, shamed, or coerced, enemy will never be a true ally.

But it is a simple fact that they are as bigoted as they claim us to be.
It could be worse!

Very good response here. Many of the others are great as well.

A gun is an inanimate object. It is no more dangerous than a hammer or baseball bat. The person wielding the tool has the intent, not the tool itself.
A good course that will teach her about handguns, one that especially is geared to women would be ideal. But from a standpoint of being a responsible father, I would urge you to help her overcome this irrational fear. I would hate myself for the rest of my life if I didn't carry because my wife had feelings such as these and then one of my children were kidnapped, raped or killed and I had no way to prevent it. I do not want you to go through something like that.
Something else I might suggest is, have her read this forum. Lots of good info on here. Also, show her the cornered cat website. Cornered Cat this site is by a woman for women and is about carrying for defense of self and family. Get her to read the site.
I would also suggest looking up LimaTunes on here. She has a blog about carrying from a woman's perspective and has a FaceBook page devoted to the same thing.

Ask her how HER crystal ball is working.
Then when she says you don't need the firearm that day, you may leave it at home.
Until she can say without question, when, how and who,,,, well then, theres her answer,
to what TN_Mike said about cornered cat^^^^^^^^^

Been married 50 years and have carried concealed for most of that time. Wife has not liked it all that time. She was glad I had the gun the one time I really needed it - but she still does not like the fact that I carry. We agree to agree to disagree! As I said, been married 50 years. I think it will last - just do not have to agree on every little thing!

Many years ago, I had a girlfriend that made the statement, "When we get married, your getting rid of all that stuff and quiting your cop job" I told her good bye, with the added, "You can't save my life, they can". My wife and I have been married almost 30 yrs, and she is very 2A and pro carry.

Well I have been wearing my gun for about a week and my wife has yet to even notice. Gotta love the King Tuck! So now there is only one person who knows I carry, me.
