Firearm Violations

Sometimes, an individual is prohibited from having a firearm or ammunition in his or her possession or subject to his or her control. These conditions usually result from a prior felony conviction, a prior conviction for a crime of violence, or a being subject to a restraining order as a person to be restrained. When a prohibited person is found to be in possession of or have control over a firearm, that person may be subjected to a new felony prosecution under California Penal Code §29800. To avoid potentially severe consequences from a felony prosecution for a firearm violation, it is necessary to hire an attorney with a long history of defending against firearm violation prosecutions.

Other possible firearm violations include carrying a concealed firearm, or failing to keep a firearm properly locked in storage.
