Miami Firearms Offense Attorney

Are Gun Crimes a Federal Offense?

Person holding firearm - federal firearm crimes lawyersThe 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

If you were charged with such a crime, the most important thing you can do for yourself is to hire an experienced, aggressive attorney who will fight for you. At The Law Offices of Joel DeFabio, our team offers decades of experience and a successful track record of results.
