getting my wife onboard

I've been a gun enthusiast most my life. I have a very nice collection ranging from hunting rifles and shotguns, tactical rifles, and several handguns. I carry either a S&W MPc 9 or my North American Arms .22 mag pocket pistol.
Me and my wife dated almost 3 months before she finally realised that I carry concealed. Her uncle is a gun nut as well along with her Aunt. I've taken her to the range a handful of times but the only thing she is able to shoot is my 10/22. Everything else she cries as soon as she charges the weapon.
She doesn't see the point to carrying concealed at all. How do I make her understand that I dont do it to feel tough but to protect us? I've tried getting her to read the Glad I was carrying articles in magazines but all she can say is that was one person's account. Has anyone else had this problem?
