First off let me give you a little back ground on the "not so anymore anti". That would be my sister-in-law. She grew up in a family that has always said guns are bad, guns kill people, never touch a gun, ect. ect. When she was little she could not even have a water gun and at one point was even told she could not hang out with another girl in her neighborhood because of the guns in the house.
So the other day my wife and I went to spend the day with my brother his wife and 1 year old daughter. My sister-in-law and I went to make a Starbucks run for everyone. As we went to leave she said she wanted just her and I to go. At this point I am thinking she is going to ask me to not bring a gun into her house or around her child. Being that I am close with my brother my wife and I had made up our minds that we would follow their request if they ask us not to carry around them. When we left I could tell she was trying to bring up the conversation about guns but did not know how, so I just asked her to spit it out. Much to my surprise she asked if I would take her shooting and teach her about gun. She stated that she did not want her daughter to be as afraid of guns as she is. Knowing that my wife and I carry all the time she knew at some point our neice would be around guns and did not want her to be afraid of us. She has also heard about some of the calls I have taken at the PD and some of the home break ins that have happened around her area. She told me that I am the first person she has ever known to carry and has realized that guns don't kill people and they are safe in the right hands. Then when I got married and my wife started carrying she thought if my wife was not affraid of guns why should she.
Come to find out a few days prior to her talking with me her and my brother had a conversation about guns. He has an old shotgun he used to hunt with and he was going to bring it home to have as a home defense gun. She will only let him bring it in after I teach her how to shoot. She said if she can find one she likes and has the money she would think about carrying concealed.
So far the only stipulation is I have to teach my brother to shoot a pistol as he never has and that nobody tell her parents just yet what she is doing.
