    Yes this is your best option until the son leaves mommys house.

    OR look into an apartment that you and the GF can pay for, for the son.

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.
    Just spoke to an attorney and he informed me it's not Nevada State Law but more of a Department policy meaning it's up to the Parole Officer. Some allow firearms if properly locked away after inspection and some do not. It's a luck of the draw thing.

  4. I faced the same situation a year and a half ago. My gun (and our alcohol) went next door to my in-laws. (We were here first.) My stepson got a job, which he still has, and a few months later got his own place. I got my gun back and now have my ccw permit with the support of my wife. Anyone in the same situation needs to make the best decision for them. Each situation will be slightly different.

    Can your girlfriend's son ask for a new parole officer?

    He's 21 and mature enough to go to prison. He can be paroled to a half-way house or shelter. He's an adult. He's not your problem. It's your girlfriend who needs to choose between you and her son. Damn, I feel like Dear Abbey

    Some years back I allowed a niece to stay with us until she got on her feet after drug rehab. She was also on probation for a drug charge. The probation officer met with me regarding firearms in the home. I advised her my firearms are all under lock and key and invited her to come to my home and see for herself. She didn't care to inspect. She did several home visits for probation and never asked about the guns again. On a side note, my niece relapsed. One evening she came home drunk and high and went ballistic when my wife asked her about it. Police had to remove her as she threatened to harm herself. She went back to rehab for 90 days and then to jail for 6 months for violating probation for the fourth time. That was in 2010. I never saw her again. She had been doing so well. I had her enrolled in college and she seemed to be gaining ground. I've heard she's a heavy drug and alcohol user and living in a nearby town. You can never tell who will re-offend. You can't help someone who can't help themselves. Only so much you can do.

    Since the original thread was over a year old before being resurrected, I'm guessing her decision is pretty final by now... :-)

No where in your account did I hear you say the parole officer is forcing you to disarm, he just won't release him to an address that has firearms in it.

    You are the one assuming you must get rid of your guns.

    Your question is now whether having your guns and the ability to protect yourself and your family is more important than having your gf's son stay with you while he is on parole.

    Ooooh, just thought of a third option... you could move out if the gf insists that her son stay there.
    Is it your house or hers, renting? this means a lot, you obviously care for your girl, but I'm afraid your going to have to make a choice, I face a similar situation a few years ago concerning my brother and of course my mom who asked in the first place,.........nether my mom or brother have spoken to us, wife, myself, daughter, granddaughter in 7 years, it wasn't just the guns, I would not trust my brother to take out the trash, he would dump the garbage and probably try to pawn the cans,
    Bad Guys of the world beware the next time you think about jumping on a old guy, because its a fair bet he's to old to fight and probably to fat to run, but can put one in your eye at 50ft with his weak hand

  10. People, really... The original thread had been dead for over a year... Let it rest in peace.
