Weapons Offenses Overview
Weapons offenses come in many forms and may include possession or transfer of prohibited weapons, such as:
- Short barreled firearms
- Machine guns
- Certain types of edged weapons
Often, an individual charged may not be aware the item they possessed was illegal or they may not have been in possession of it at all.
Individuals convicted of felony offenses and family violence may also be prohibited from owning or possessing firearms. The length and details of the prohibition varies. Failure to follow the law may result in misdemeanor or felony charges for unlawful possession being lodged by the government.
Another common weapons offense is Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon (UCW).
