Atlanta Weapons Crimes Lawyers

The United States Constitution provides citizens the right to obtain and own weapons. However, certain circumstances can have an adverse impact on that constitutional right. In Georgia, if a citizen becomes a convicted felon, that citizen is prohibited from possessing or owning a firearm ever again. In fact, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon is a felony offense, punishable by 5 years in confinement.

The other main weapons crime in Georgia is Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Crime, which is also a felony offense, punishable by 5 years that must run consecutive to the sentence for the underlying crime. Most often, people charged with violent crimes or drug offenses also get charged with weapons crimes. It is rare for a person to get charged solely with a weapons crime.

Because our criminal defense attorneys have so much experience defending violent crimes and drug offenses, they also are very experienced when it comes to defending weapons crimes. Some common Georgia weapons crimes we handle include:

  • Carrying Weapon Without a License
  • Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon
  • Possession of a Firearm by a First Offender Probationer
  • Carrying a Weapon in an Unauthorized Location
  • Pointing a Firearm at Another
  • Unlawful Discharge of a Firearm
