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.

You are a convicted felon may your wife own a firearm in the home?

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.

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."
