Rogers, AR asked in Criminal Law for Arkansas

Q: I am wanting to know arkansas law on owning/having a gun safe if my spouse is a felon.

He is NOT on parole. I understand he's a felon but I'm not. I'm curious to know if a gun safe would suffice if I do decide to purchase a weapon. I haven't been able to find any info. I'm wanting to get my conceal carry permit so I'm just wanting to check the legality of him being around me with a gun.

A: If your spouse is a felon then he/she cannot have a weapon in the home. He/she could easily be charged with a PFBCP if the parole officer comes to do a check/search at the home. If your spouse has any questions then he/she should direct them to the parole officer.
