Balancing Public Safety and Constitutionality

Gun crimes are a controversial topic due to the intersection of constitutionality and public safety. In general there are two broad categories of gun crimes: improper possession of a gun, and commission of a crime with a gun.

Improper Possession

Possession of a firearm is not innately criminal. According to the 2nd amendment, citizens may possess a firearm. However, there are some limitations on the constitutional rights of the individual. In every state, there are requirements and rules placed on the permits that allow individuals to lawfully possess guns. Possession of a firearm without the proper permits and registration can be criminal.

Additionally, the circumstances of an individual can cause issues with whether they may possess a firearm. In most states, being convicted of a felony makes it illegal to possess a firearm under any circumstances.

Using a Gun in the Commission of Criminal Acts

In addition to crimes associated with the possession of a firearm, there are also crimes that can be committed through the use of guns. Typically the use of a firearm will enhance the severity of the charges filed against an individual. For example, if an individual is charged with an assault, and that individual used or possessed a firearm during the altercation, the charges may be enhanced to assault with a deadly weapon.

In addition to enhancing crimes, there are a number of mundane crimes that can also be committed with a gun. The obvious examples of crimes that could involve a gun include attempted murder, homicide, and armed robbery.

Giving You The Advocacy You Deserve

If you have been accused of a gun crime and need to defend yourself, you will need the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney. A private defense attorney is able to focus completely on your case and devote far more attention to your case than a public defender would be able to.

Gun Crimes Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a gun crime?

A gun crime is any illegal act that involves the use or possession of a firearm. Most gun crimes are associated with violence, but sometimes there can even be nonviolent gun crimes.

2. Who can defend me against a gun crime?

As with most criminal charges, defending against gun crimes in court requires a criminal defense attorney. Under constitutional law, all criminal defendants are entitled to be represented by a public defender. However, it can be more effective to hire a private criminal attorney who can devote more time and energy than an overworked, potentially unprepared defense attorney.

3. What are types of gun crimes?

For most citizens, gun crimes would be associated with the improper use or possession of a firearm without a permit. However, if an individual has been convicted of a felony, the mere possession of a firearm or ammunition can be a gun crime. Finally, there are crimes like assault with a deadly weapon that can include the use of a gun.
