Weapons Charges


Firearms and Weapons

There are various laws regarding firearms and other types of weapons. These laws can be so complicated and specific that often even law enforcement is not fully aware of the nuances. Only an experienced and qualified Weapons charges lawyer in Walnut Creek, CA knows how firearms and weapons charges work. Weapons violations can be misdemeanors, felonies, or wobblers (chargeable as either a misdemeanor or felony). Conviction for some violations can result in a 10 year or even lifetime ban from owning a firearm; a conviction for others has no impact on your right to have a gun. If you commit a crime while armed with a deadly weapon or a firearm, the increase in possible sentence can be dramatic, and it can also result in a lengthy mandatory state prison commitment. Make sure you contact a California weapons charges attorney right away if you are facing a firearms or weapons charge in Walnut Creek, CA or Contra Costa County, California.
