    Question Virginia LEO question

    I realize this question may be better answered by an Atty, however I'm more likely to face this situation with a LEO and an on the spot judgement call.

    I have a concealed permit, but my wife has a felony from years ago preventing her from possessing any firearm. If I were stopped while carrying and while my wife was in the vehicle, there should be no issues as long as the weapon is in my possession right?

    And, at home if the weapons are not accessible by her (in a safe) we're good to go right?

    I would say as long as the weapon is on your person while in the car together you should be good to go. in a glove box or center console would probably not be good. As far as at home, if it is stored in a safe and she does not have the combo you should be good also. Best bet though is check with a lawyer or even better contact the VA AG's office for a ruling.

    That's in-line with what I was thinking.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I would consult an attorney and prepare a defense to the possible charge of "Felon In Possesion".

    I love the felon in possesion law. It makes for an easy case, and almost guaranteed resident in one of the fine federal correctional facilities across this great land.
