Well, maybe I should clarify a little more.....She's not afraid of guns. She has shot them, (she cold be pretty good). Her standpoint is that guns are evil, and kill people. (Another topic for another rime.) I doubt that she would shoot this gun we're discussing very often, if at all. If she did, I'd just say "Hey, try out MY new gun." This would really be her gun if SHTF, and it became an unavoidable fact of life that you needed one.
