You need to change title to ex-felon not on probation or parole because that changes the entire narrative!!!!!

Once a felon, always a felon (absent some sort of expungement if applicable).

I don't think finishing probation/parole matters.

IANAL (or felon )

from my read of the law, a convicted felon is prohibited from owning firearms for life. That means the situation does not change once parole is complete, even if 30 years have passed. Is there such a thing as an ex felon?

If you read the original post it has nothing to do with a felon or ex-felon legally owning a firearm. It is about a felon or in this case an ex-felon living in a house with someone who owns firearms. If you are on probation in a state or one of the conditions of your probation is not to be in a household with firearms then you are in violation, but as you can read the OP stated that the person is not on probation or parole anymore so he would not be in violation.

I missed that. Thanks for the clarification.

The OP (posted below) was about if a felon can live in a house with guns. Later posts may have changed but the OP was only about a felon living in a house with guns.

No such thing as an ex-felon. One is a felon until the day the die.

IANAL (or felon )

I went through this dance in Virginia four or five years ago. It turned out the woman who was my housemate had been convicted in a Federal Court of Conspiracy to Distribute a 15 years ago while she was married to someone who sold illegal steroids via US mail. She brought packages to the Post Office for him and picked up stuff at his PO Box. That was enough. Probation with no jail time. No matter. A Felon is a Felon forever. All firearms, all ammunition, and even (under VA law) all cartridge components had to be secured in a safe ($$$) and a lock with no access to the key had to be placed on my nightstand pistol. Either that, or sell everything. It was a total pain and it can be argued it was a contributor to the break up of an otherwise very nice relationship.

If you are on probation and one of the stipulations of your probation is not to live in a household with firearms then it kinda makes a difference.
