my wife does not shoot or carry, but also does not blink to see my gun anywhere/everywhere. She supports me and has respect for the fact that the 2nd amendment is one of the greatest pieces of law ever constructed.

Low be it for me that a day would come that I'd be without a gun and needed it... I can hear it now--- "you take that thing to the toilet with you everyday, but now when you need it you dont have it?!!?"

My wife carries and does support or back me up if need be. We have practiced such at the gun club and with the IDPA group.

My wife doesn't, but has no problem with me having guns. I never broadcast the fact that I carry to anyone including her. She has expressed an interest in shooting. It would be good if she knew how to use one if needed.

My wife routinely takes a small pistol when she goes for a walk, but never does when she is working on her plants in the front yard alone. Of course she does have sharp implements to hand.

She has her own bedside .45 ACP Glock and she's a pretty good shot.

She won't bother if we are going anywhere together. I guess she feels I can handle whatever might come up.

My wife just has no interest in guns or shooting. She grew up with her father shooting and hunting. She even handloaded shotgun shells. It was her father who introduced me to guns. Maybe someday she'll come around.

My bride had her CCW when we married 25 years ago and encouraged me to get mine.

My Canadian wife doesn't carry and is forbidden by Oklahoma law since she is not a US citizen but is a legal permanent resident. Apparently the legislators of my state haven't heard of the 14th Amendment which provides equal protection of the law to citizens and legal residents.

For the next five years until she can file for citizenship, she is at the mercy of any criminal intent on preying upon her when I'm not at her side.

She has no problem with me carrying and is somewhat in awe that people can carry firearms for self defense.

My wife of 45 years fully supports my carrying my 45!! I've been very blessed through years - she likes motorcycles, fishing and shooting. Does it get any better than that??

Unhappy My Wife Does Not Support

My wife is firearm-phobic.

Her father and brothers were hunters, regularly hunting deer every fall.
Her stepfather carried concealed.
I was a LEO some years ago, but had to sell my service weapon when I went back to grad school in a northeastern state where "no weapons allowed."
But she wants nothing to do with them, nor in her home.

She would allow no weapons in the house while we had (oh, so curious) minor sons growing up. One of them is now training to be a LEO.

But now? She acts as though the idea is totally distasteful. We seem to operate on the principle of "don't ask, don't tell." That is, as long as she never has to see a weapon, she can pretend they don't exist.

My future wife despises guns, yet lets me keep/carry as i please. She refuses to hold, shoot, clean, load or carry a firearm. They are allowed in every room in the house (except the kitchen). I have hopes that one day she'll come to the "dark side", but as of right now that's not happening.

Funny thing is that when I met my wife she was horrified of guns. She'd never try to 'forbid' me from owning or carrying at any point, however.
Shes did come around entirely and has her own revolver and has shot my 12 gauges and is 'ok' with them now.

Honestly, I dont think Id have married someone who told me I couldnt own something, regardless of the reason.
Im an adult, not a child, and I certainly wont be treated as a child.

She is very happy that I carry now that we're living in the big city. We've also had some dog issues when out riding our bike, pits and rotties mostly....altho a little barking cat tried to bite me when we were out walking in a state park....so I mainly carry for biting dogs.
She intends on getting her CHL when she has a chance to take the handgun safety course.

Voted other because my wife is on the fence... she's normally pretty vocal about not liking guns, and not liking the fact that I have a few in the house, but this past winter we had an incident at church (also her work) which suddenly made her want me to carry everywhere, including at church, and she thought maybe she should get her permit as well... now that the 'situation' has blown over a bit, it has again become a subject we don't talk about much. She has, however lightened up a bit and is now OK with me teaching her 17 yr old son how to shoot, as well as taking him hunting next season.

I'm lucky, it was my wife's idea to get our permits. We have always enjoyed shooting as a family so when our state became a "will have the right state" she said let's get it.
