Try to find an NRA instructor in her area, preferably female; the range might have a suggestion. As you know, the first impression will be crucial and a seasoned instructor will be of a great help.
They know what to look for and how to work down the concerns of a first time shooter.
The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

I second jfl's post. He needs a qualified instructor to teach him safety and the basics. Tell your friend politely that when the subject is guns and gun safety never assume anything and when in doubt check it out. Sounds to me that his mind may be opening. No matter what the motivation is he is about to take the first step toward the rest of his life. Be there for him so he doesn't fall when and if he stumbles.

+1...Most people are just ignorant because of lack of exposure. Maybe you have a convert.
Friends don't let friends be MALL NINJAS.
I am just as nice as anyone lets me be and can be just as mean as anyone makes me. - Quoted from Terryger, New member to our forum.

My .02. Make sure she has someone knowledgable about guns and safety go with her. Dont want something bad to happen and reaffirm how she may already feel. You know. To show her guns can be safe. Start out with smaller calibers. Some people tend to start out to big and are overwhelmed and get scared of the recoil, sound of it going off etc. Its easier to learn the basics of gun use and saftey with smaller cals. IMO
