Weapons Charges

Minnesota Weapons Charge Attorneys

Although Americans have a right to possess firearms, the law places certain conditions on that right. A felon cannot own a gun. You need a permit to carry a pistol outside your home or business or while hunting. And of course, use of a firearm in the furtherance of a criminal act is expressly prohibited.

If you have been charged with a weapons crime, you face serious consequences, including jail or prison time, a fine and possible loss of your concealed carry permit. You should speak with an experienced weapons charge defense attorney as soon as possible.
