Felon Live With Guns In House

If you have guns in the house all locked up in a safe and the felon does not have access to any of them can they live in the residence with you?

I'm pretty sure they cannot. IANAL.

I only say that because it seems like around here there is the law.... And then there is Barney Fife's interpretation of the law, which usually equates to:

Ugh. Seems illegal. Must be illegal. Arrest now. Get backslaps. It'll all work out in court. Thin blue line. Sheepdog.l

The law says nothing about living arrangements. Only that firearms must not be accessible to prohibited persons. Locked in an actual safe should qualify as not accessible. But, as always, consult an attorney to be sure, and for any legal "gotchas" to watch out for.

Thus, the only inquiry that this Court should conduct is to determine whether the firearms prohibited by the Act are protected by the Second Amendment. Because they are, the Act is simply unconstitutional.

IANAL either but you probably ought to have a frank discussion with the parole officer as well unless released outright. From what I understand, in most jurisdictions when folks are on parole the PO can enter the residence, workplace, etc without warrant as stipulated in the terms of release.

All this. It also depends how recently they are a felon. Are we talking a 1995 conviction for assault, for which someone got probation and never saw a cell? Or a recent heroin conviction?

Setting aside the law, having guns in the house with a recently minted heroin addict with a felony conviction makes you a target for theft or worse like a home invasion, if the addict goes back to old ways and forgets to pay the bills. My 0.02.

I've seen a known multi-offense felon handling guns for his auctioneer father at a sale last fall. Didn't seem to bother anyone at all.

An excellent point

G. Gordon Liddy used to say on his radio show.

" As I am a convicted felon I am not allowed to own a gun. However, Mrs. Liddy has a rather nice collection of them."

Ok he was convicted in 1995 served a sentence until 2000 and since then has changed his life around. Not on probation or parole just a previous felon.
