Does my husbands felony record prevent me from owning a firearm in nc

Greensboro, NC |

I personally have no record of any kind and I'm worried that having a gun in my house would some how jeopardize my husband. He had a non violent felony 31 years ago, B&E.

  1. You may own a firearm. However, if your firearm is ever attributed to your husband, he could get into very serious trouble. If you are going to do this, I suggest that you keep the firearm locked in a place to which your husband does not have access; You should have the only key or be the only person who knows the combination. If you husband possesses (controls, not owns) the firearm even for a moment, he is guilty of a Class G felony, punishable by up to 47 months in prison. This is not something to take lightly.
