While citizens in the U.S. do have the right to bear arms, these rights come with limitations as the safety of others is always considered most important. Laws regarding illegal weapons use are extremely strict and can involve long-term consequences for the accused. Professional attorneys like the ones at Drummond & Nelson are aware of the severity of these laws and have the skills and experience necessary to expertly handle your case.
Types of Weapon Charges
There are a variety of types of crimes that can be exacerbated by illegal weapon use, and these include assault, attempted murder, murder, domestic violence and drug crimes. For these cases, an accomplished criminal defense lawyer is especially necessary. Weapon charges may be taken to state, federal or juvenile court. Consequences can include high fines, incarceration or another kind of mark on your permanent record. Criminal charges regarding weapons include:
- Possession of a weapon during crime
- Illegal possession of a weapon
- Weapons trafficking
- Illegal sale or distribution of a weapon
