My boyfriend and I live together. I have three kids – 11, 14 and 16. My eldest is bipolar with significant learning disabilities and social skills deficits. During the school year he’s away at his Dad’s. He comes home for about a week during the school year and stays with me during the summers. My boyfriend just bought a handgun for home protection. I’m deeply unhappy about this but I can live with it while my son’s not at home. On the other hand, I can’t imagine any scenario in which it would be safe to have the gun in the house with my bipolar, impulse-impaired, sometimes aggressive, sometimes suicidal child. Is it unreasonable to ask that the gun be kept out of the house when my son is in town?
