    When the firearm is not on the non-prohibited person, the firearm has to be secured, as in a safe.

    This is no different from having a firearm in a household with children.

    What law says you have to secure firearms around children? (in PA)

    Are you his only heir? Leave a handful of loose ammo in his car and drop a dime on him. Then, sit back and enjoy your inheritance. Or, just keep it out of his hands. Oh, and welcome to the forum.

    I remember the LCN being very active about that time.
    Well, Henry was part Irish so...

    The OP's father sounds like he was paranoid about being outed from the witness protection program, hence the HH reference. Oh wait, HH is dead, never mind.

I was explaining a mix-up at the airport with my checked sidearm to him a moment ago and he got angry saying that I can't have my firearm on his property or anything under his name. Is that true? I've seen nothing of the sort on any forums asking similar questions. His "felony" would have occurred in NJ in the '80s. He has lived in PA for 25+ years. I think he's talking out of his @$$, but I'd love to have some back-up when I tell him to chill out.
    Why do you think your Dad would make up a story about being a convicted felon? That just seems so odd.

    I did it to keep the 6 year old kid next door away from my 5 year old daughter. Told him I was a cattle rustler, a pirate, and a few other scary things. Hey, Dads do what is necessary. Maybe OP'S dad is trying to scare off a skeevy stripper from his impressionable sonny boy.

    Is a timeshare really owned property? Or is it treated like rental property.

    Default Re: If my dad is a convicted felon, can I carry my sidearm on his property?

    For clarification, I'm a 36 year-old married father of three. So there are no strippers at my doorstep.
    My father doesn't own a computer and got his first cell phone last year (Obamaphone), so he's not exactly up to date with ANYTHING. Considering that his felony was over 30 years ago, I guarantee that the laws have changed since then. His record is clean as of now, so if there was a felony, it's been stricken from public record at this point.
    The reason why I think that my dad would make up a story about being a convicted felon is because it's in his nature to say anything that makes him seem more bad-ass than he is. It's this activity that's kept him from living a full life. To be honest, until he tells me the nature of his felony, I have every right to call bull shit. He claims that he's trying to protect me, but the truth is that I can handle the truth better than him. I'm not here for a Psychological couch-sitting though.
    My question wasn't whether I should or shouldn't carry around him; it was whether he's making shit up about him going to jail due to my weapon on my person or locked up.
    I AM his only heir, but he's been under the poverty line for so long, I hope that I die before him. If he dies before me, I'll inherit debt.
    I think I have my answer. It's not against the law for me to have my weapon in his presence, so long as he is never in possession of it. However, an LEO could construe the situation to his/her liking.

    EDIT: My dad despises guns. He's never used one, aside from hunting as a child. He's very anti-gun, actually. He's always held firm that fists are better than guns. If you're on this forum, you know the truth. However, I'm certain that his hatred of guns is playing a large part in what he's trying to tell me.
