Gun & Weapon Crimes

Federal and state laws allow many people to possess certain guns and weapons for a variety of purposes. These purposes can include hunting, recreation or self defense. The laws that guarantee some people the right to own and carry certain weapons also specify when it is illegal to own or use such weapons. Violating these laws by unlawfully possessing or using a weapon is a serious crime.

Types of Weapon Crimes

The most common infractions of weapon laws involve the use, possession, sale or ownership of firearms. Although there are laws banning the use or possession of certain other weapons, such as brass knuckles or illegal knives, firearms are frequently the subject of weapons crimes. Some examples include:

Weapon crimes lawyers sometimes use evidence of illegal searches and seizures to defend their clients against weapon crime charges. For example, if a police officer conducted a search of a person without a warrant or valid reason, any resulting weapons charges may be dropped.
