Yes, but the felon cannot have access to it.Additional: While the above answer is true in the broad sense, the spouse who owns the firearm may NEVER have it in their possession at any time the felon-spouse is in, or near, their presence.They may not keep it in the house - they may not keep it in a car - they may not carry it - etc - at any time the felon-spouse is present.To do so, places the felon-spouse in the unlawful/criminal position of being in "concurrent possession" of the weapon.Furthermore, if done in such a way that it can be proven that they "knowingly" did so the spouse could be charged as an accessory to supplying a firearm to convicted felon.
