Two questions need to be answered before anyone can continue:

1) Searchable or non-searchable probation?

2) Is firearms ownership prohibited during the term of probation?

This is a talk to a lawyer type of question. A lawyer consulting the law, and talking to the person's Parole/Probation officer is going to result in a much better outcome (irrespective of the law) than asking an internet forum.

Yep. The terms of probation and underlying conviction would essentially spell out what the gun ownership issues by that person will be.

Probation terms should be spelled out very specifically. I know for a fact that just simply being on probation does not exclude you from buying and owning firearms. In order for you to not be able to own/buy firearms it must be stated in the probationary terms that you are not allowed to do so.

Sounds like locking them up would be the smart thing to do, whether or not it is required.

He cannot have any "access" to any firearms. Locking them up would be a minimum and would be best to remove them from the residence. You could not even really remove them from the safe while he was in the house since he could potentially be considered as having access. If he is on searchable probation he was probably convicted of some kind of felony or weapons violation.
