My son was convicted of a DUI Level 1 due to prior DUI's. He is on supervised probation. Is he restricted to own a gun? Am I restricted from owning a gun since he resides with me? Is he prohibited from being in the car or house with a friend who owns a gun?
Ask the probation officer. That is the person who controls the situation and will be checking to see if there are any violations. You should not be prevented from owning a gun, but, if your son is, you may need to take measures, a trigger lock or gun locker for example, to ensure your son does not have access to the gun or guns.
Any comments offered are not intended as legal advice. This attorney does not know the specifics of the particular case sufficiently to offer legal advice. You should hire a lawyer who can evaluate the details of your specific situation before offering advice.
Typically gun restrictions apply only to most felonies and only a few misdemeanors including domestic violence. You need to consult with his attorney in North Carolina to get these specific questions answered. I would make sure to understand these answers, especially while on probation.
