Weapons Charges

Fresno Weapons Crimes Defense Attorney

Skilled Defense from a Fresno Weapons Charge Attorney

In the state of California, there are very strict laws and regulations about the possession and sale of firearms and weapons. If you purchase a firearm, you are expected to follow these rules to the letter. Law enforcement and federal agencies take firearm and weapon crimes very seriously, which means you could be facing serious penalties if you are convicted.

Weapons offenses can carry heavy prison sentences, large fines, and a permanent criminal record if you are convicted. If you are convicted of a felony, you will no longer be able to legally carry a firearm.

Common Weapon Charges & California Weapon Laws

Each weapon charge carries its own penalties, largely depending on the circumstances of the alleged offense. Carrying a concealed weapon or violating an ordinance such as bringing the weapon onto school grounds could lead to a very serious felony charge.

A few of the most common weapon charges include:

  • Carrying a weapon with no license
  • Possessing a loaded weapon
  • Possessing a concealed weapon
  • Unlawfully selling a weapon
  • Possessing an illegal weapon
  • Possessing a weapon (as a convicted felon)
  • Trafficking weapons

Is It Illegal to Possess a Homemade Firearm in California?

For years, enthusiasts have been making their own firearms, going through various sources to purchase parts that can be put together to build guns. Recently, emerging technologies, such as 3D printers, have created new avenues for hobbyists to construct self-made firearms. In California, it is not illegal to make or possess a homemade gun.

Generally, self-manufactured firearms do not have serial numbers, which has earned them the term “ghost guns.” Unfortunately, because the government cannot track and monitor these weapons, some individuals have found them as a way to get around the state’s restrictive firearm laws. Before a person can purchase a gun, they must pass a background check. If they have a criminal past or any other restrictions, they would not be able to buy a gun. Knowing they might fail the background check, they may seek out a private seller, as opposed to a licensed dealer, to obtain a weapon.
