    Since you have experience, please clarify the point.

    (My feeling is that locking the knives up is the best idea, but I would at least listen to a doctor's advice if it were otherwise.)
    Sorry. I was upset and didn't take time to clarify. I think having the gun in the home is the terrible idea. Also, locking up knives in recommended.

    Edited the post. Thanks, Steve.

    In my years as a LEO I have seen people stabbed to death with a dinner fork, a screwdriver and one with a TABLE knife even as dull as they are.
    With a decent safe and a little common sense he can have a firearm and keep her about as safe as he is ever going to.If she gets to the point where she is gonna kill herself all she has to do is walk out in traffic somewhere, She can do it if she wants to and NO ONE can stop her!! You gonna tell him to NOT own a car, a lawn mower with its spinning blades??? Get the point??? Get real people Im NOT telling him to put her in danger but for G-ds sake use a little common sense.

    You might do differently when you live in your own home, but I suggest that your wife's condition precludes keeping a gun in the house.
    Were it me, I would even lock up the kitchen knives, unless her physician tells you something different.

    Keeping a "44 in the bugout bag in my closet and a speedloader full of specials in the nightstand where only i know where they are" seems to me to be an invitation to disaster. Wives can be as persistently curious as a child is, and children are always unsafe if left with unsupervised access to a gun.
    Having a gun in general is an invitation to disaster. I think i was misunderstood here. I was pointing out that i keep it put up and the bullets totally separate out of respect for my ma-in-laws dislike for guns. MY wifes condition may vary from other bipolar peoples but she is more like an extreme version of manic depressive. Her bad days arent " wheres the gun, someones going down" she doesnt even really yell alot or get violent at all. Hers are like "wheres) the credit cards, im going shopping" and the next day she acts like it wasnt HER that did it. The Dr.s are the ones calling it bipolar. I would imagine the symptoms of behavior range from person to persn. In s1s case he was told flat out that his wife may do something bad. Not mine. The worst thing MY wife may do is pawn my gun to buy a new purse or something. My kids know i own them. And im not gonna bore everyone with the details butmy kids are very educated in gun safety, operation and maintenence. We shoot togeather a lot. Like i said. I could go on about THAT for pages. But im as reaponsible a gun owner as i can be.

    I was just saying that in s1's case, he was TOLD by his wife NO, I DONT TRUST MYSELF WITH A GUN AROUND. Thats a good reason NOT to become a gun owner. If I WERE told that i would sell everything i own, down to my slingshot.

    But southerboys right. Someone elses house, their rules. If i didnt already own them i wouldnt buy one NOW myself (personally i would'nt spend the money on one,i would be spending it on getting my own place- ive actually been tossing around selling mine anyway to get our own place)

    But even in a house without guns theres potential for disaster, so its not really fair to say that if i store my gun in my closet n my bullets in my nightstand im inviting a domestic disaster. Oh i COULD get a finger scan lockbox, i could get a safe. Ok. I agree with that, to a point. But thats not a cure all one-fit answer.

    Heres the bottom line: if i felt the presence of my guns were a risk to anyones safety in or out of my home, that is, MY ownership of a handgun were to cause ANYONE unnessicary and mortal danger, i wouldnt own one. Period.
    I KNOW my wife. I KNOW my kids. I dont care how big ur safe is or how many locks you have. The BEST safety is education.

    s1 was given information, one part was the man who owns the house he lives in said "no" second, the woman whom he chose to spend his life with said "no" .

    I was just drawing a comparison to my own situation. As well as the differences.

    Sounds to me like you've answered your own question....if you need Xanax to own a gun, then by all means, get some pepper spray, and let it go....or move.....

    I knew a bi-polar person. OK, manic-depressive. Pick your label. Not a relative.

    Very nice person. Their med's generally seemed to work OK. Dead now. No, it wasn't a gun.
    Shocked EVERYONE. They all said "I can't believe they'd do THAT". I said that too.

    Sir, you have responsibilities to meet before you can start buying things you WANT. Like your own home for your family. If you gotta bust caps, borrow one of your cousins or rent once in a while. You are in no position that justifies the expense or hassle. Sorry. Maybe later .
