Firearms Violations

Because there are many laws and regulations for guns that are constantly changing, it can be hard to know what is prohibited and what is not with regards to your firearm. Our attorneys in Santa Ana could help someone accused of a gun by explaining their charges and preparing a case in their defense. Some of the common firearms violations include:

  • Brandishing a weapon
  • Assault with a firearm
  • Felon with a firearm
  • Carrying a concealed firearm
  • Carrying a loaded firearm in public

Felon in Possession of a Firearm

If you are convicted of a felony, certain misdemeanors, or are a narcotics addict, your right to own or possess a firearm is taken away under California Penal Code 29800 PC. When you are found to own or possess a firearm under these circumstances, you can be charged with felon in possession of a firearm. If you were previously convicted of a felony, the penalties for this charge include up to three years in prison and substantial fines.

What are Legal Defenses to Weapons Charges?

Weapons-related offenses are taken seriously by local courts. It is essential to have capable legal counsel that can build an effective defense that results in a positive outcome. Depending on the circumstances of your case, several defense strategies could prove effective. Some effective arguments include:

  • Self-defense or the defense of others
  • The possession of the firearm was legal.
  • The weapon was discovered as a result of an illegal police search (A violation of the 4th)
  • You were unaware you were in possession of a firearm.
  • The police report contained false statements.

A thorough investigation into the alleged gun offense and review of all relevant legislation by our skilled attorneys in Santa Ana could determine the most appropriate defense strategy.
