Ok guys, I have wanted an AR for a long LONG time. My wife doesn't like guns and I just convinced her to let me get a handgun a few months ago (got the XDm .40). I am afraid of a very real possibility of a new AWB that could wind up being permanent from what I have read. I just started surfing the AR section trying to find some info on what I may get, I will probably build one to save some money. Now for the dilema which I need your input on. Wife basically said no, I have been trying to break her but I cant try too hard obviosly because I know she will get annoyed. I know there is no way I could hide it from her, I live in a 720 sq foot condo, she doesn't work and I would have to assemble it at some point and she is a light sleeper. We have 2 cars and I have thought about keeping it in my car because she never drives it but firearms aren't allowed at work even in the car and I don't want to risk my job. Sigh, so do I just keep trying to work on her, what did you guys do to convince your wifes if they weren't ok with it? Should I just go ahead and get one and hope she doesn't freak out too badly (I highly doubt she would leave me but she would be VERY upset). Also, if a new AWB is put in place do you think they would make us turn in our AR's or do you think they would grandfather anyone in that has one already?
