Mr. Anderson said he had told his wife he didn't want the gun around the house because of their children, who range in age from 8 to 18. "Get rid of it," he recalled telling her. "I didn't want to have it. I didn't feel we needed it."
The new statements from Anderson appears to contradict what he told the Chronicle Sunday outside his home.
On Sunday, according to the Chronicle, Anderson said he was not "aware that his wife even had a gun."
Meanwhile, in another apparent discrepancy in his story, Anderson told the AP Monday, "I really don't know how she got [the gun], or where she got it from."
The police have said Bishop did not have a permit for the gun she allegedly used in the shooting.
