View Full Version : Dissambled AR-15 Still Considered as a Firearm?

I have a roommate who is on probation due to felony charges in California, the house is in her name. I leave my guns at my father's house for that reason and also safe keeping, my question is if I bring my rifle into the home with the lower and upper separated would it be okay to store it at the house or would she still get in trouble if her probation officer decides to come over and search the house?

She will get busted for having ammo. So keeping a firearm in her reach will get her screwed . Don't risk it if she is on probation .
I would definitely not leave it out in a common area, or an unlocked area where it can be visible or accessible.

The issue is whether or not she has access. Keep it under lock & key to keep her out of trouble.

Separating the upper and lower changes nothing. The lower is the "firearm". Hand her a stripped lower and she is in violation.
She could not even get reloading components like brass, primer...

Okay, thanks for the fast responses! guess I'm just going to keep it at my father's house.

She is still prohibited for life even after probation for a felony. For some offenses it is possible to get firearms rights restored but that is the exception and not the rule.
