    Awesome, take the not seeing him anymore option.
    I did! Thanks for your advice!

    Good to hear! Hope you and your son are able to recover from the experience. It sounds like you are doing pretty well, but if possible I'd also recommend trying counseling/therapy. These kinds of relationships tend to leave scars that can take time and work to recover from.

That said, if you don't like guns or otherwise simply aren't comfortable with them, that's perfectly reasonable. Zero disrespect for folks who make that conscious decision for themselves. Just choose a partner who shares your values. Ideally one who doesn't juice, rage in front of your kids, punch you, lie to you, etc., etc.

    Honestly, and it's not even my position on gun ownership talking, if your real "but for" is that he owns a gun and not any single or combination of the dozen other gigantic red flags, you've seriously gotta stop dating. For your son's sake much moreso than yours. A man like this is destructive and dangerous with or without a gun, though especially with. Distance yourself sooner than later or you'll need a gun yourself whether you like it or not.
    I own guns too. But she isn't isolating the gun issue. It's one of many. But having a gun around is a serious issue. Accidents happen. Kids can get in to them. And every gun owner is a law abiding, responsible gun owner. Until they're not. She has a child. If she isn't comfortable, good for her.

    The thread title and the meat of her post isolated the issue. And as an aside:

    Go Fudd elsewhere.
