Weapons Charges Defense Attorney in Cape Coral
Florida legislators are very observant of our second amendment right to bear arms. On the other hand, they do recognize that unrestricted access to all types of guns is a recipe for disaster. In order to balance these two interests, the government has enacted weapons laws permitting the right to keep and bear firearms, but limiting those guns to be used for strictly legal purposes and only available to people with clean backgrounds. If you do break the state’s gun laws, you will be subject to severe penalties. A Fort Myers criminal attorney can help you fight any weapons charges you may be facing.
Carrying a concealed firearm is a third degree felony. Owning certain illegal guns, like shot guns or rifles, is a second degree felony. Anyone already convicted of a felony found to be in possession of a gun is committing a felony. Carrying a gun on your person while committing a felony will result in increased charges. All of these crimes are very serious and will require the help of a top Fort Myers criminal attorney.
If you have been accused of violating a firearms law, you may be subject to between ten years and life imprisonment. The crimes are always felonies. Only a skilled Fort Myerscriminal lawyer can help you prove your innocence or negotiate reduced sentencing.
