I've been struggling with this same topic, especially lately with all the anti gun stuff in the press.
My wife is vehemently, and irrationally anti. I've only managed to get her out on the range twice, and she swears she will never go again. I respect her views, but she is as anti as one could possibly be. We had a home invasion down the block from us recently, and suffice to say it didn't even cause her to question her views one iota. It's likely that I'll be have to stop owning a firearm as soon as kids are in the picture. So my answer is yes, very important. In fact, I think it's important to be as aligned as possible on all values, like morals/religion/politics/child bearing/ etc.
