The Second Amendment gives citizens the right to bear arms, but there are a number of complicated laws that are involved when an individual chooses to exercise that right. Both state and federal laws dictate when and where a firearm can be carried, as well as whether or not a firearm or other weapon can be carried.
If weapon charges have been brought against you due to a failure to comply with such laws, you may face serious penalties upon conviction. In Orange County, carrying an illegal, loaded weapon can result in 3 ½ years in prison.
If you have been arrested or charged with any type of weapons offense, including carrying a concealed weapon, felony possession, unlawful sales, or unlawful discharge of a weapon, Blustein, Shapiro, Rich & Barone, LLP is ready to provide you with the strongest possible defense.
