Miami Firearms Offense Attorney
Are Gun Crimes a Federal Offense?
The Second Amendment affords every American of age to legally own a firearm. However, this law is not without restrictions. For example, having a right to a firearm does not entitle nonmilitary personnel to own automatic weapons. There are other restrictions that apply as well, such as certain prohibitions against bringing weapons across state lines.
If a person uses a firearm in the commission of a crime within a Federal facility such as a government office, they could be sentenced to up to five years in prison.
Those exempt from these charges include:
- Officers, agents, or employees of the government who are authorized to have these firearms
- Members of the Armed Forces when authorized by law
- Those who incidentally had firearms following lawful activity, such as someone who returned from hunting
