General Criminal Defense Information

Topic: Weapons Charge Criminal Defense

A weapons charge, also commonly referred to as a gun charge, is a serious criminal offense which requires a serious attorney to protect your legal rights. In the state of Ohio, it is illegal to own, conceal, or carry a weapon without the proper license. The two basic types of gun licenses and permits include one that allows you to carry a weapon "openly", and one that allows you to "carry and conceal" a weapon.

A violation of any restriction of a gun license (permit) can result in criminal weapons charges or loosing your right to legally own, possess, or carry a weapon.

Being arrested with a weapon without the proper permit or license is a whole different situation. The ramifications of weapons charge (gun charge) without the proper license and permit is extremely serious; especially if you are arrested with firearm during the course of a crime.

Weapons (gun) charges may include, but are not limited to:

  • Illegally concealed weapons
  • Possession of stolen weapons

  • Unlawful weapons sales or trafficking
  • Purchasing weapons for someone else (straw purchase)
  • Possession or use of a weapon on federal property
  • Illegal possession of concealed weapon
  • Possession of a firearm as a convicted felon.

A weapons (gun) charge conviction can be detrimental to your future goals, opportunities, and even your freedom. Depending upon the circumstances of the arrest and/or your prior criminal history, a weapons (gun) charge conviction could result in penalties such as:

  • Hefty fines
  • Potential jail or prison time
