Being a prohibited possessor, having your gun rights taken away, can be a frustrating, and if you’re not careful, precarious place to be. If you are a prohibited possessor and you are found in possession of a gun, you could face a class 4 felony – misconduct involving weapons. And if you have lost your gun rights, you likely have a prior felony that could be used to enhance your sentence if you are found guilty at trial. If your gun rights have been taken away, you must not knowingly possess a firearm. And it is good advice to never be in a situation where you unknowingly possess a gun.
If you are living with a prohibited possessor, you may wish to obtain a gun safe and create protocol as to the weapons so that the prohibited possessor never knowing or unknowingly possesses a gun. Of course the safest advice is to not have any guns around and then you won’t risk additional charges.
