Mississippi Weapons Offense Attorney
Weapons Offense Defense Lawyer Serving the Gulf Coast
The ability to own guns and protect your family and property is a fundamental American right. Whether you use your firearms to hunt or keep them as an added security measure, the Constitution states that your right to bear arms shall not be infringed. There are, however, restrictions on which guns or other weapons you may own, where you may carry them, and how you may use them.
Types of Mississippi Weapons Offenses
At Miller & Miller Attorneys at Law, PLLC, we have experience with all kinds of Mississippi gun crimes and other weapons offenses. We have successfully argued cases for clients charged with carrying a concealed weapon, felon in possession, illegal possession of assault weapons, federal firearms violations, possession of unlicensed firearms, minor in possession, illegal weapons sale, and illegal discharge of a firearm. This is not an exhaustive list, so if you have been charged with a weapons offense of any kind in the Gulf Coast or surrounding areas, you will need a Mississippi criminal defense attorney to provide you with the legal counsel necessary to protect your Second Amendment rights.
Weapons offenses can also be tacked onto other charges. If you have been accused of a drug crime in Mississippi, for example, and had a firearm on you at the time of arrest, by law the penalties can be doubled. An armed robbery is a much more severe offense than an unarmed robbery. An accusation of domestic abuse may be judged as more legitimate if you were in possession of a deadly weapon. Convictions of a weapons offense crime are punishable by fines, jail time, and a loss of your gun permit.
