Can I own gun when my boyfriend is a convicted felon living with me? 1 Answers as of February 12, 2011My boyfriend and I have recently moved in with each other. I have no record, but he is a convicted felon. I have a Firearm Owners Identification Card and would like to get a gun for safety. Can I have one in the home with him living with me?

Although you do not have a record, your friend does, and if you get a gun, in your common place of residence, the police can charge him with UUW by a felon, a very serious charge. I would strongly suggest that you do not obtain a gun under the present circumstances.
