I am reaching out to the ccw community for some helpful advice on my situation. I just recently bought a glock 23 i plan on carrying because my wife and I are about to have our first child and naturally I want to be able to provide as much protection for my family as possible. I have grown up around firearms since I was little and spent 4 years in the navy where I did a deployment with the marines. So I am not new to guns, but this is the first I will be carrying concealed in the civilian world. However, the problem arises with the fact that my wife has an incredibly uneducated, inexperienced fear of guns. She says she absolutely hates them, however she has never even held or fired a gun in her life. Her closest experience near a gun is what a police officer has on his hip. She was just raised in a city with a strong liberal family. She will tolerate me having a gun in the house (still very upset though) but only as long as it is locked securely away in a secrete spot no one can get to. She absolutely refuses me to carry it even though I am legally allowed to. She even threatens divorce if I try to go near our new baby with it on me. I try to get her to explain her feelings to me about it but all I get from her is irrational hypothetical situations about the baby grabbing it off me or some kid grabbing it and shooting someone. I am not one that doesn't believe accidents can't happen, but obviously I know how to take every precaution possible. I feel that the benefits way out weigh the bad by a large margin because of this. I have even shown her many, many instances about concealed carriers saving lives. We just recently had a dad with a small child who wouldn't be with us anymore if it weren't for the father having a concealed weapon. Using this situation as a reference and asking her her solution to it without a concealed weapon all I got we're more irrational situations about call the cops or run into the house, all of which are not viable at gunpoint. I feel that her unjustified fears of firearms are leaving my family at an unneeded risk and I don't know what to do. I feel like either way I could lose my family. I carry and she leaves, or I don't carry and wish I had... I have tried any way I could think of ease her feelings a bit but she is standing firm and I have no idea what to do next. I feel like my own wife is revoking the rights I am entitled to as a citizen of this country I have served and would again if asked to. Has anone else had a similar situation or have any suggestions to help me out?
