Bucks County Weapons Charges Defense Attorney
Fighting Firearms Charges and Enhancements in Pennsylvania
A weapons offense on its own can carry a significant sentence. However, if a weapon was present while another crime was being committed — armed robbery, for example — the penalties are even more severe. Prosecutors can seek enhanced sentences in cases where a weapon was present, even if the gun was inoperable or fired. It takes an experienced defense attorney to fight weapons charges and prevent the most serious consequences. If you have been charged with a crime due to an alleged gun law violation, we can also work to protect you from the serious consequences of felony or misdemeanor charges.
According to Pennsylvania Law:
Persons not to possess, use, manufacture, control, sell or transfer firearms (Pa C.S. 18-6105)—This law applies to those people with previous criminal convictions. Those convicted of most felonies would fall under 6105 as would many others who have committed certain combinations of misdemeanors. Further, still others may be covered by 6105 such as fugitives from justice and those with a PFA entered against them. 6105 makes it unlawful for these covered individuals to possess a shotgun, handgun or other firearm. It is a 2nd degree felony and can result in punishment of up to 10 years in prison.
Firearms not to be carried without a license (Pa C.S. 18-6106) – 6106 applies to those who are carrying concealed weapons with or without a permit to possess in Pennsylvania. This crime is charged as a third degree felony if the weapon is not registered to the carrier it is charged as a first degree misdemeanor if the gun was licensed to the carrier.
