If I am on probation for a DWI, is a gun allowed to be in my home?

Question Details:

I am trying to find out the rules regarding probation for a DWI and owning weapons NC. Someone told me that it is a condition of probation that there be no guns in the home during the 18 months of probation. She said that the Probation Officer does not want the Probationer to have weapons in the home when he/she conducts a home visit. Since I have not been convicted of a felony, do I have to give up my second amendment right to own a weapon in my home just because my PO does not want me to have a weapon in the home? Can they take my guns?
