    Carry while with a felon

    A good friend of mine is getting out of prison soon. He was charged with felony poaching and felony drug charges. I was just wondering what the laws where with being around him while I have a gun?

    IANAL - unless he is a resident of your household it should be irrelevant. Poaching & drug charges? I bet there is a good story behind that one

    I can't imagine a better time to carry than when hanging around with a convicted felon.

    Well, according to the Progressive Left's 1%, it is OK if it is a White Collar Felon of the 'protected class'.

    It it is in the presence (at least within 100 yards) of an intellectually Progressive Left's definiton of a 'Redneck' (common Serfs such as you and me), then you are screwed.

    I am NOT an attorney. I am pretty sure you are ok. I am pretty sure he would be in violation of his probation. JMHO

    If he doesnt live with you and you are ccing when hes with you its nothing on you or him either. Im not a lawyer but that would be same as saying that a released felon could be arrested for just being around someone else that legally has a firearm in public. I dont know of any where that has got quite that nutty yet but things are moving fast so who knows

    I would be concerned about him having drugs on him while you were around him with a firearm.

    I'm not going to tell you what to do, you need to make that decision on your own.

    However, if I were in your shoes, I would distant myself from him in every aspect. I know, he did his time and he is sorry for what he did. As an ethical hunter in the same state as you, I feel he stole from every sportsman who hunts and fishes in this state. Not only did he steal a natural resource, he left a black eye in the hunting community and for all ethical sportsman who respect the life of the animal(s). He apparently had no respect for the life or lives he took. I have no respect for him by virtue of his actions. I know it is hard to turn a cold shoulder to someone you may consider as a friend, but, is he really a friend you want to be associated with? Are these morals you condone? Can you tell I dont like poachers?

    I am guessing that it will be his responsibility and requirement of his parole that he not ever have a gun again and rightly so. Your firearm should not have any bearing on him as long as he does not have access to it.

    Call me a jerk but I have no time for slob hunters. I wont even comment on the drug thing. My.02

    I have to agree completely. You are judged by the company that you keep, especially in todays day and age. It is important to choose your companions wisely. I am by no means telling you to alienate you your friend. I am advising discretion.

    I also recommend finding another friend.

    As my Granddaddy used to say; "Fly with the crows, get shot with the crows".

    I'm not a lawyer, but I highly doubt it's illegal for you to carry while with him.

    I'm not going to say anything about the company you keep, I'm sure we all have a friend or family member who's made mistake(s) before. I will instead hope that you can serve as a role model for this friend of yours.

    Edit: Forgot to mention, if I were you, I'd be more worried about a scenario involving this guy having beef with somebody (maybe a dealer he ripped off or another user friend he ripped off, etc) and something going down while you're with him..

    One more non-lawyer chiming in. I agree with the others above: He isn't allowed possession of a firearm, and his legal disabilities aren't yours. (So I guess if you two ever go to the range together, he'll just have to stand and watch .)
