Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Legally you have the right under the 2nd Amendment to own a gun. However, the felon cannot have ACCESS to the gun. This means that you would need to keep it somewhere secured with a biometric lock that they cannot access. A key lock whereby there is a potential for them to get the key and access would not suffice, you would need a security device that would completely prevent them from having access to the gun. If you do so, you do have a right to own the gun and have it in your home.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
