What IS important is that the other person doesn't have a problem with YOUR right to posses guns.

"Subject to Change Without Notice"
People tend to re-evaluate priorities as life progresses. An anti gun chick who quietly agrees with her gun owning spouse might flip her perspective if she's having a kid. You know the "no loaded guns in my house around my kid" ultimatum.
The rub to this is of course you won't find out her stance has changed until its way too late to back out.
The more prohibitions you have, the less virtuous people will be.
The more subsidies you have, the less self reliant people will be.
