Take the lady hunting!
Give her time and let the world show her the horrors around her. If she is going to work as an EMT she will see some of those horrors. Ask her to tell you about her calls...sooner or later she is going to get one of those calls where it will click and the thought, "this could be me or my children..." will come up.
In the mean time if she wants to go hunting then do what ever you can to take her. Just let her do thing herself until she asks for help. It could be she is using hunting as a trial run to see if she like guns, can handle a gun, or even if she can handle taking an animal's life. If she finds she can't then CC wont matter cause she wont have the mind set to use it.
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria

I have been married for 6 years, and known my wife for 3 years prior to the fateful day. I introduced her to the fact that I shoot and carry firearms regularly. She was interested and was soon shooting with me, but never really wanted to carry. We bought her a rifle and a couple handguns, and she shot paper regularly and was actually quite good. But she still didn't have the need, desire, drive or commitment to carry.
It wasn't until this past February, when a large man followed her from the supermarket to her car, when she said to me, "I wish I could defend myself. I wish I had my gun."
I would hate for her to have to be scared first, but if thats what it takes.....

I guess I'd just ask her if she thought it would be fair to your kids to have them murdered, or motherless because she is too liberal or too afraid to learn about firearms.

My girlfriend is afraid of guns as she pointed out what happened at Fort Hood. She also has fear that someone could take my gun away from me, and then use it against me or us. Interesting how she has the scenario all worked out in advance. I wouldn’t even try to get her to shoot, much less carry. Some people have absolutely no concept of safety, and for this type of person, its better to just give them a can of pepper spray and hope for the best.
