Shielding You Against Various Types Of Weapons Offenses

While the Constitution does grant Americans the right to carry a weapon, there are limitations to this right. Violations of gun laws and using a gun to commit a crime are both serious offenses, and they could ultimately cost you the right to bear arms and other personal freedoms.

The team at Louis W. Emmi Attorney at Law fights for the interests of Pennsylvania residents facing charges of weapons offenses of all kinds. Louis Emmi, our lead lawyer, vigorously defends the interests of individuals facing the possibility of criminal penalties and other repercussions, and we can help protect your interests as well.

Guns, Other Weapons And Your Best Interests

While a gun is the most common type of weapon used to commit crimes, anything that could cause harm to another person may also be a weapon. There is a wide range of criminal offenses related to the unlawful use of a gun or another type of dangerous weapon, and some of them include:

  • Carrying a weapon on school property
  • Carrying a firearm without a permit
  • Illegally selling firearms
  • Carrying a weapon with the intent of carrying out a crime

Individuals convicted of a felony charge lose the right to own or carry a weapon. Unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon could lead to serious penalties and additional legal complications. These are serious charges, but we will work tirelessly to help you avoid a conviction, including seeking a reduction or dismissal of the charges against you.
