Ignition key issues!

Hi, so I just bought a 1993 jeep YJ with the straight 6 and manual tranny . I've noticed that I cannot remove the key from the steering column unless i twist it all the way back to the lock position which is fairly difficult on this thing. Is this a normal thing for a YJ?

There's a little lever you gotta press down to get the key out, if it's like mine.

Ok thanks alot! Im still trying to figure out all the little quarks of it since it wasnt very well taken care of. door handle missing, passenger seat belt dont retract, driver seat belt dont buckle, crazy amount of wind noise (more than there should be)....little stuff.
