Thread: Nevada parolee threatening my firearms ownership

  1. Find the son another place to live. Sounds like your GF is a keeper, after all this time. If finding another place for the son is not an option with his mother, you do indeed have two options, neither with a mutually beneficial outcome. Give-up the guns, or give-up the girlfriend. I'm assuming it is her house, as you didn't say. Good luck, I hope whatever choice you make is your choice. I couldn't give my weapons to someone for safekeeping until I wanted to shoot. I couldn't set myself up to be a victim in a home with no defense, but that's just me.
    I'm a firm believer in two term limits for all politicians; one in office, the other in prison.

    Which law is that? Must be a state law, because there is no Federal prohibition like that. The Federal prohibition is that the felon (or those under indictment for a felony) can not be in possession of a firearm or ammunition. Another person living in the same house can certainly keep their firearms, according to Federal law, so long as they are locked up such that the felon has no access to them. Possession is defined as knowing where the objects are AND having access to the objects. No access = no possession.

    This may be Nevada law. The parole officer has almost unlimited authority. If the kid was convicted in Nevada of a state felony then Nevada law controls. If the parole office says no firearms within the home then no firearms within the home. That is how simple it is. Now perhaps the OP can go to the parole board and see if they can change the terms of parole, or perhaps petition the governors office. The federal law does not trump state law with regard to the states rights to determine parole terms for a state offense.

He tried to remove the ankle bracelet and set the alarm off. They came and arrested him and when he went before the judge she sentenced him to High Desert Prison. The whole time this was going on Parole and Probation was aware of my firearms. They had inspected the house and saw my safe and nothing was said. They came by 2-3 times a month to check on him. What makes this so different now? I was allowed to keep my guns then.
    Since he is on parole after being placed back in jail after trying to make a "break" by removing the ankle bracelet, it could be the authorities deem him to be someone who might try to break into your safe or do something equally irresponsible. Stupid actions generally come with harsh repercussions. I do feel for your situation. Someone mentioned you funding his own apartment. This would certainly be a workable option if the gf is willing and you have the cash.

    Personally, if I had a 21 yo son (step son, ?) who just came out of jail and was given the option of him staying and I get rid of all my firearms or the son living elsewhere, the son would be living elsewhere. He's old enough to be on his own, he's old enough to be a responsible adult, and he's too old to be putting burdens like this on you at your age. It's obvious you care a lot about him and his mother. Whatever choice you do decide will be a difficult one, but make sure it is one you can live with in the long run. Best wishes to you sir.

    Point taken. You are so very right about that because she also has a gun which she is willing to give up.

  8. And...on top of that... to add insult to injury.... you are giving up your firearms for the benefit of a criminal.

    Yup. He's 21 years old and being paroled? He's a man, an adult. Let him figure-out his own life. Don't let him live there. My girlfriend would go before I would rid myself of my rights over some punk who cant get straightened out. And if they won't release him because of your guns tell him to get a lawyer. It's his problem.

    We talked last night and thanks to all the good advice I received from the forum members that I was able to use her attitude appears to be changing in my direction. We shall see.

    Coming up with a solution that you both agree with will be huge. I hope things work out for the best.
