She was raring to go hot after that.

Granted she wasn't as strongly opposed as yours, and didn't lay down any ultimatums (she'd been to the range with me a few times, but didn't understand why she "needed to learn"). She now has a CCW and carries occasionally (still working on this)
This 100% for me. Do this together with her and tell her it's important (she's important) to protect.

Have your wife watch the news every night for a week
