Arizona Firearm Attorney
If you have been charged with a weapon offense in Arizona, you may be facing severe consequences. Arizona has several laws that make the possession and use of weapons illegal under certain circumstances.
Arizona weapon crimes can be complicated matters, and they may result in either a misdemeanor or felony conviction. The possession of certain types of weapons, such as rifles or shotguns with shorter barrel lengths, is illegal in Arizona even if you have no prior felony convictions. And if you are a prohibited possessor, you may be charged with a crime for the possession of a gun until your civil rights are restored.
If you have been arrested or charged with a crime that involves the illegal possession of a firearm, illegal modifications to a gun, or violating parole or probation by possessing a weapon, you need an experienced defense attorney on your side.
Because most crimes involving the use of firearms can be classified as “dangerous” under Arizona law, they can carry a mandatory prison sentence for those convicted. This is true even for first-time offenders with no prior criminal record.
Weapon charges in Arizona are defined under Chapter 31 of the Arizona Criminal Code. Charges under Chapter 13 can include:
- Misconduct involving weapons.
- Unlawful discharge of firearms.
- Sale or gift of a firearm to a minor.
- Misconduct involving body armor.
