Guys bring their wives/GF's/etc into the store all the time to buy guns for themselves. They ask all the questions while the wife/gf/etc just sorta stands behind them looking bored.
When they finally decide on something and I start getting them filling out the 4473, one of the things I *ALWAYS* tell/ask them is "And you're taking her out to shoot it FIRST, right?".
The wife/gf always gets the biggest grin on her face while the man sheepishly and embarrassingly answers "oh yeah, yeah.."
Please read the Calguns Wiki
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.
