If someone in your home is a felon is it still legal for you to own a gun?

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."

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.

In Michigan can a mother of a convicted felon own gun if they keep it in gun safe in home?

The question doesn't state whether the convicted felon lives there or not. If he lives there the answer is definitely NO, she cannot. The courts have ruled that even being in the same residence as the firearm places the convicted felon in "concurrent possession" of the weapon, and could trigger his arrest and charges of firearm possession.

Can the wife of an ex felon own a gun?

That depends on the use of "ex-felon". If the husband was a convicted felon whose conviction was later overturned and their sentence reversed, then the husband is no longer a felon - that is an ex-felon. If the husband is a convicted felon who simply completed his sentence, that is not an ex-felon - that is a felon.In either case, the wife retains the right to own a firearm. However, doing so in the case of a felon husband may send her husband right back to prison - under federal law, a felon may not purchase, possess, or be given access to firearms. Having a firearm in the same home can be considered allowing a felon access to firearms, even if kept in a gun safe.
