My mother in law is a widow and doesn't have much money. She has been talking about a gun for home defense, and I was thinking of buying her one. However, I am a little nervous... I was talking to my mother in law about guns and when to use them and when not to use them. My mother in law is very stubborn. 1) My mother in law said that she would fire warning shots if someone was coming at her. I told her that was a bad idea because an assasilant can close distance very quickly, take the gun from her, and shoot her. 2) My mother in law said that she would shoot a waring at someone outside the house. I told her that was a bad idea too because she can hit a person in the house across the street. I told her you shoot only when you feel your life has an imminent threat and you shoot center mass to stop the threat until the threat is gone. My mother in law didn't seem to believe me. I am now considering if she is too stubborn to learn when to use a gun and when not to use a gun. Maybe I should just put her to sleep? Opinions please?
