Weapon crime charges can have serious consequences. Though we have a right to bear arms, Connecticut laws are incredibly strict when it comes to behaving illegally with any weapon. Weapons are not always categorized as guns. In fact, knives, baseball bats, and other dangerous tools can be considered weapons when used in a specific manner. If you’ve been charged with a weapon crime, it is important that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.
Some potential weapons crimes charges include:
- Selling firearms or dangerous weapons
- Distributing firearms or dangerous weapons
- Purchasing firearms or dangerous weapons
- Felonies committed while carrying a firearm or dangerous weapon
- Carrying firearms or dangerous weapons without a permit
- Carrying a firearm while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
