My wife is anti-gun, but last night when our house alarm went off she sure didn't mind standing behind me and my S&W MP40.
And, I can tell you, thinking that there was an intruder in the house I was sure glad to be well=armed.
Turns out it was a malfunction, but at the time it was real. And the cops, polite and helpful as they were arrived 15 minutes after the alarm went off.
Perhaps it would have been prudent to wait for them to come and just hide in the bedroom, but its my house so I did a search and found no one.
Talking after the incident it finally occurrred to my wife that had I found anyone I would have shot them. Up until that moment she didn't make the connection between me having the gun and shooting an intruder.
She is a wonderful wife, but she has a different view on guns and individual rights. So, I couldn't resist pointing out how she was protected by her husband, his gun and his NRA flashlight.
