Protect yourself with a strong defense if you face weapons charges

Being charged with a weapons offense can be a surprise, but if you are, you need to take it very seriously. There are dozens of crimes that can involve weapons, and there are many charges that could be filed against you. Some of the most common include:

  • The unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon
  • Carrying a concealed weapon in a school or government building
  • Defacing a firearm
  • Gun charges while under arrest for drug charges
  • Possessing an illegal weapon
  • Possessing a dangerous weapon

You should know that the state has many laws that restrict when and how firearms can be used. Even someone with a legal right to possess a weapon may be violating the law if they are in possession while under the influence or if they leave the weapon unattended while loaded. Some additional illegal actions include:

  • Shooting off a gun recklessly into an occupied building or structure
  • Setting traps that are meant to be triggered and shoot or explode when approached
  • Aiming a gun at another individual unless for the purpose of self-defense

Weapons charges can result in sentences involving prison time and high fines. You could face a fine of up to $1,000 for using a weapon in a prohibited manner. Fortunately, if you have a good defense, you may be able to have the penalties reduced or avoid being convicted completely.
