Q: My husband and I have a sometimes volatile relationship. Nothing major, but there have been times when we were drinking that things got out of hand. He recently purchased a pistol for self-protection. He keeps it locked away, but it makes me crazy just knowing it's in the house. It's not like I think he would actually use it, but when we argue, the fact that it's here is in the back of my mind. We have been going back and forth on this and getting nowhere.
