A felon may not purchases, possess, or be allowed access to firearms. Living in the same home as a felon is considered to be allowing the access, even if they are kept in a safe.
No, he cannot have a firearm.
They may not have access to any firearm. When not in the personal custody of the owner, the firearm must be under lock IF the felon is in the same home at that time. The felon may not have access to the keys to the lock.
You will need to consult with a lawyer for a current, correct and legal answer.
The answer is, it depends. In the United States, generally speaking, a felon cannot legally own or possess a firearm. If the felon has absolutely no access to the firearm, he hasn't techincally broken any law, but if there were some trouble and police came into the home and discovered the firearm, or if the firearm was discovered in some other way, the local DA might try to say the felon had access to the firearm because it was in the home. That has happened here a few times. Additionally, there may be state/local laws specifically prohibiting firearms in a home with a felon.
No, a felon can not posses ANY firearm, modern or muzzle loaded ANYWHERE in the United States, this is a federal law.

I hope not. ADDED: It IS LEGAL FOR YOU to be able to own a firearm, HOWEVER you had better keep it somewhere else. It is not lawful for a convicted felon to be in the same house with it. Court decisions have ruled that such a situation places the convicted felon in what is known as "concurrent possession" of the firearm and they can be charged with "Unlawful Possession of a Firearm."
Yes. Felon may not have access to the combination or keys.
can a convicted felon's wife own a firearm that is not in his home
Some states may have laws disallowing it, but in general, yes, the wife of a felon can have a firearm as long as the firearm is kept where the felon cannot access it. Seeing I live in Alabama this is the state i need the laws for
Yes, as long as the person isn't a felon.
yes it is
No. A convicted felon is neither allowed to own or "POSSESS" firearms. A firearm in a convicted felon's home places them in what is known as "constructive possession" of the firearm and is illegal.
