Many states and federal jurisdictions have laws which regulate the manufacture, use, sale, possession, transfer and carrying of weapons. While the second amendment in the constitution grants every citizen the right to bear arms, there are many limitations imposed on this right. Gun owners are required to be aware of the prohibitions on when and where a firearm can be carried and used in their state and at the federal level. Not following these prohibitions can put the gun owner in violation of the law.
Weapons charges can include but are not limited to:
- Automatic weapons (illegal sales, altering weapons illegally, possession of an unregistered assault weapon
- Drug-related Gun Charges
- Firearm Smuggling
- Illegal/Unauthorized Weapons Sales
- Interstate Transportation of Firearms
- Making a Firearm Accessible to a Child
- Possession of Deadly Weapon in Penal Institution
- Possession of Prohibited Weapon
- Possession of Stolen or Illegally Altered Firearms
- Possession or Use of a Firearm in a Federal Facility
- Possession or use of a Firearm in Connection with the Commission of a Felony
