Is it illegal in the state of North Carolina for a convicted felon to live in a house where someone else owns guns?
Yes it is unlawful for you to be anywhere around firearms regardless of WHO owns them. To be in the same place as a firearm places you in what the law calls "concurrent possession" of the firearm. You could be convicted of the possession and sentenced to prison ESPECIALLY if you are a federally convicted felon.
Unless the person is the 'legal guardian' of the felon, there should be no reason for the person to be convicted of any crime to do with a felon being around a firearm. It is the responsibility of the felon to NOT be around a firearm, not anyone else but the felon's responsibility. The person however may get into trouble if they knowingly give/sell/purchase a firearm to/for a known felon.
The key word here is "felon" - nothing else you stated in your question has any weight on the matter. As a felon, you may not own, possess, or be allowed access to firearms and/or ammunition. That is a matter of federal law, applicable to all states and territories of the US, and there are no exceptions to it.

I hope not. ADDED: It IS LEGAL FOR YOU to be able to own a firearm, HOWEVER you had better keep it somewhere else. It is not lawful for a convicted felon to be in the same house with it. Court decisions have ruled that such a situation places the convicted felon in what is known as "concurrent possession" of the firearm and they can be charged with "Unlawful Possession of a Firearm."
Can a ex-convict who is in a house where there is a gun owned by someone else can they still be charged?
It depends on whether or not the terms and conditons of his probation or parole say "don't be around guns." But if that is not the case, then the federal law at issue here would be the one that says: Felons cannot POSSESS firearms or ammunition. Possession can be actual or constructive. But even "constructive possession" requires that the felon have both the intent and the ability to control what happens with the gun and…
The kind of weapons that Browning Firearms manufacture are guns that are generally for hunting animals in the wild. But then, it depeds on how you use the firearms that they manufactured, you can harm a person with it if you want, but I strongly suggest that you don't or else you will be sent to prison.
Its "unsecured"...and it is probably better to say what it isn't than what it is-- A secured claim is a debt that has a direct claim on the rights to something. Like a car loan will have a lien on the title, showing that specific item is pledged to that lender, a house mortgage the same thing.....anyone getting a lien on some asset of yours has a secured position in it, and has the first…
