Weapon Crimes

Weapon Crime Law Firm in Santa Rosa

Issues surrounding the ownership of various types of firearms continue to be a point of contention in today’s society. It is your constitutional right to bear arms, but you are required to have a license and special training to legally own many types of firearms in California. Any person who owns or uses a deadly weapon or dangerous ordnance must be in compliance with state and federal statutes.

Violation of any gun laws or other weapon control laws could result in a serious criminal charge, and the possibility of heavy penalties if convicted. Some of the most common weapon crimes include:

  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Illegal conveyance of deadly weapon, dangerous ordnance, or object indistinguishable from a firearm in a school safety zone or into a courthouse
  • Violation of firearm license duties
  • Penalties for Carrying a Concealed Weapon

For you to legally carry a concealed handgun, the law requires that you have a special license. Carrying concealed weapons or dangerous ordnance could lead to charges of a misdemeanor in the first degree, up to a third degree felony, based upon the circumstances in your case. Fines can range as high as $5,000 to $15,000, and the court could impose a jail term as long as 180 days, or a prison sentence up to 5 years.

As with all crimes, your criminal record could impact sentencing. The federal authorities also look to prosecute firearm violations, and you may be facing charges that have been filed in federal court – an extremely dangerous legal problem. Any weapon-related offense must be carefully managed by a high quality defense lawyer. Call upon our Santa Rosa criminal lawyer at once for defense counsel.

I rarely need an attorney but when I have, Michael has been very attentive to detail, hard working and imaginative. One time when other attorneys essentially refused the work, saying I should walk away from the issue, Michael and his team were able to find a solution to the problem with very positive results
