A couple years after me and my ex got together, her brother got busted for assault with a deadly weapon and was given a pretty stiff sentence of 10 years, given that he had a prior conviction for homicide.
He went back to the joint and was granted parole after 7 years. I don't know about other states but in order to be paroled in California at that time, the convict had to have an address to be paroled to, so my ex asked me if he could crash at our house.
Mitch was a great guy and we'd always gotten along famously, going out and getting into shit together, so I said sure, no problem, and my ex called the parole office and gave them the information they needed and our address.
A few days later a parole officer shows up at my door to do a home 'check', walked into the house and saw my gun safe in the living room and said "Aw, hell no" and walked out. He wasn't in there five seconds.

    1. The lovely Miss Emily had her baby.
      The last couple videos I watched, I wondered if she was pregnant. Today (Friday) I saw a youtube post she did saying she's a new mommy.

  2. With all due respect, why was your safe in the LR? In a MBR closet, or better yet in a second BR.
    Your firearm in the nightstand is good enough for "deal with it NOW" situations at night.

    1. Small house and a pack rat wife. It was in a corner and out of sight to anybody standing at the door.

  3. No way an agent of the state gonna walk into my home. A friend like Mitch being a great guy has nothing to do with it. He's a felon and he's dragging the heat (parole agent) into my bidmess. He made his choice and I've made mine. Mr. Great Guy the Felon ain't worth it.

    1. Naw, I'd do whatever I could to help Mitch out. There's a bit of a backstory I didn't get into. Maybe later.

  5. We had a case up here in WA...can't recall the details, but cops needed to come into a guys house, investigating a burglary or something, asked if there were any firearms. HE said ya his gal had some, was not a big deal at that time and everything worked out.
    Then he gets arrested for felon in possession, he got busted at 18 for breaking into a school or something, this was like 10 years later. He served time,got out on parole did that time and due to having a job around explosive and also being stupid, that he had gotten his rights back.
    Even though they were not his and he did not try to hide anything from the cops, just being in the same room is considered "possession".

  6. I get it. I've got friends I'd do that for. I had an applicant for employment come through my door. A felon. When young she got tangled up with the wrong crowd. I'm not placing blame, she was guilty as shit. No one would hire her. I hired her. One of the best employees I ever had. Ten years since my retirement and she is still with the agency and has excelled.

    1. We ended up finding him a place in a small trailer park and ponied up the first 3 month's rent for him. It cost me 1500 bucks I couldn't afford, but he had a place he could parole to.
      He did another year for parole violation a year or so later for hanging around another felon, got out and moved to Arkansas where is doing fine and keeping his nose clean last I heard.

  8. Step son on fed parole was told about "constructive possession" by his PO. In other words, if he was in the same room as a firearm, he was constructively in possession of said firearm. I told him to ask his PO to call another PO in to arrest himself (the PO) for constructively transferring a firearm to a felon.
