The various state laws concerning firearms are not always easy to understand and even the smallest mistake could lead to jail time.

According to state law, the following activities are punishable firearm offenses:

  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Carrying a weapon in public
  • Unlawful sale of a firearm
  • Unlawful discharge
  • Possession of a firearm in a public building
  • Transportation of a loaded firearm in a vehicle (automobile, boat, aircraft, etc.)

If you have been charged with a firearm offense, it is in your best interest to contact an attorney immediately. Although you may be tempted to speak out in your defense, remember that anything that you say can be used against you in a court of law. Speaking to authorities without the guidance of an attorney could lead you to unknowingly incriminate yourself. The Fifth Amendment of the Constitution protects your right to remain silent and we encourage you to take advantage of this right should you face any kind of questioning.
