They can as long as they are not in" possession" of the firearm. The legal definition of firearm can include if the felon knew where the gun was and had reasonable access to it. To be on the safe side, it is best to avoid these situations so you don't risk getting charged with a felony.

    Based on the facts presented, yes. I suspect there is more information that would be relevant that could change the answer.

    Yes, the felon is the person who cannot own, possess, use or have access to a weapon, not the rest of the world. If this is a live in the same place issue see an attorney for guidance.
