I like how pax does it.
TheNocturnus should have a long conversation with his wife. He could prepare a series of short videos of criminals engaged in crime so she can see what can happen to her. There is quite a bit of stuff on youtube that you can use. Once she sees the ruthlessness of the criminal actors, she should come around.
Once tact you may wish to take is to walk her through a scenario where someone takes the baby from her arms at the mall. Perhaps she gets knocked down. She should think about what to do and the time she has to act before that kid is gone.
If she won't even do that, then in my mind you have some serious thinking to do about the future of your marriage since children will be involved.
