If you have been convicted or charged with a firearm offense it could have severe consequences. It is against the law to carry a gun or rifle, unless you have a concealed weapons permit. Unless you have a concealed weapons permit, it is also illegal to carry a rifle or gun in your car, even if you have a license to own a firearm.
Depending on the situation, a gun offense can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony. Firearm charges can be incredibly complicated so it's imperative to have an experienced criminal defense attorney who has your back, and represent you in court. Along with with the fact that gun possession can be a criminal charge by itself, the use of a gun, rifle or firearm in addition to possession crime can increase the punishment.
