Re: Young Father Prepares For The Worst...
I would talk directly with her dad and tell him I appreciated his opinion but that as the man of your family you think it is important and necessary to protect them and have a firearm now and intend to keep it and would appreciate if he could accept both you and your decision. If he thens says he can't then I would tell him the decision has already been made.
It's your family and you should do what is necessary to keep them safe. If someone breaks in and harms your family who do you think father-in-law is going to blame? Your wife may grouse for awhile but she'll get over it particularily if she enjoys shooting. Once your child gets old enough (now) to be at risk from the weapons then it is imperative that you take steps to make them safe from her. You may wish to consider one of the handgun storage vaults for your Kimber and use that in the house.
