My husband was going to buy a gun without my consent: Advice?

I found out my SO was going to purchase a gun without talking to me about it. I’m so upset I feel like this was the breaking point for me. He never listens to me, never cares what I have to say. I told him I don’t want a gun near my house and he said he “won’t” and that he’s still going to purchase it. Am I overreacting? Because he makes me feel like I am and I am tired of not having my self heard.

Everyone who wants protection needs a gun

Unless you think he’s a threat, why on earth would this bother you? I conceal carry. I will never be a victim again :kissing_heart:

I’m pro gun. It is necessary in this time to have protection.
Also if it doesn’t interfere with the bills then :woman_shrugging:t3::woman_shrugging:t3: it would annoy me but that wouldn’t be make it or break it. Just as if you bought a purse or dildo or something he didn’t think you needed. He shouldn’t act like a baby about it

We’re in the same boat. We live with the inlaws and they dont want a gun in their house. My husbands friend bought a gun for him even when I said no. Now he has to give his friend back that money when we can’t afford it and will soon have a new car due to other reasons. Then he buys ammo which could either be in our savings or food for my kids mouth or diapers…he never listens to me about finances either. And everytime I vent to the inlaws they think raising our rent will help. Like no…that will just make matters 100% more worse

Sounds like he did talk to you and then decided to do it anyway. Buying a gun and not making other adults aware isn’t exactly responsible when their are kids in the house.

I don’t see the problem (unless you feel threatened) as long as it’s kept in a safe place where children can’t get to it

What’s your reasoning for not wanting a gun? What’s his reasoning for wanting one? Do you discuss everything you buy jointly or just items of a certain amount? Has he had adequate practice and training with firearms to use and store them safely? If he doesn’t have the training would you feel better if you went together to practice so you’re not uncomfortable?

Everybody isn’t comfortable with a gun in their house and that is her personal feelings and she isn’t wrong for that. As a married couple there should be a middle ground to keep you both happy and things that affect the entire household should definitely be discussed and agreed upon.

I bought a gun and didn’t ask my husband. I have a biometric gun box under my bed but I also have a conceal carry permit. Yes I think you are over reacting. You should request a gun safe or lock box.

Yes you’re overreacting. Is there a reason you don’t want one?

Personally he is a grown adult and can purchase what he pleases without your permission. If he wants a gun and keeps it safely out of the reach of any children then there is no issue.

It seems like your unwillingness to be open minded and having a discussion with him about it. if you are unwilling to compromise or come to a mutual understanding , why would he come and talk to you about this ?
