Each state has its own unique set of laws regarding the lawful possession and use of a firearm. However, New York has the most restrictive. Any violation of the New York gun laws can land you in prison for a substantial amount of time. Violation of the federal gun laws also exposes you to significant prison time if you are convicted. The firearm offenses are numerous but whether you are charged in New York State or Federal Court, you will need an experienced criminal attorney to zealously represent you and fight hard for you.
The range of firearm offenses is numerous and this list is merely a sampling:
- Possession of a loaded firearm with intent to use for an unlawful purpose
- Possession of an altered or defaced weapon
- Possession of weapons during the commission of certain crimes
- Possession of a firearm by a felon
- Assault with a firearm
- Armed robbery
- Imitation firearms
