This includes crimes committed with a weapon or other illegal weapons possession charges. While the right to bear arms is written into the U.S. Constitution, laws and regulations are strictly enforced.
Common weapons charges include:
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Carrying a concealed weapon
- Illegal selling, possession, or distribution of a weapon
- Possession of an illegal assault weapon
Further, if you are a convicted felon or if this is your second or subsequent offense, you face increased penalties and harsher consequences.
Misdemeanors vs. Felonies
As with any crime, punishments are based on the specific circumstances of your arrest, the severity of the crime committed, and the amount of damage that occurred. While each crime is unique, they are generally classified as misdemeanors or felonies.
These charges range from illegal possession of a firearm without a permit and brandishing a deadly weapon, both misdemeanors, to felony assault with a deadly weapon that carries up to six years in prison if the weapon in question is semi-automatic.
