It sounds like you are asking if he could be charged for being a felon in possession of a firearm, or if he is on probation if that is a violation. The answer to that is usually no if you can demonstrate that the gun is not under his control or he does not have access to it. If it is locked away and he does not have access to the key, then he is probably safe. However, check with his probation officer just to make sure. Jared C.

Yes, just like he can go to a store which sells firearms. He cannot possess, or constructively possess, any weapon. Leave in locked.
