Under state and federal law, there are certain restrictions and rules that a person must follow in order to legally possess or purchase a weapon. These laws can change frequently due to the constant controversy surrounding the right to bear arms. Staying on top of these frequent changes can be difficult and you could find yourself in legal trouble for an unintentional weapons offense. If you are convicted of a weapons charge, you could face exorbitant fines, court costs, jail or prison, and probation.

A few acts that might lead to being charged with a weapons offense include:

  • Using a weapon to injure or kill another person
  • Attempting to harm another person with a weapon
  • Threatening another individual with a weapon
  • Unlawfully discharging a firearm
  • Selling or purchasing weapons illegally
