Weapons Charges And Your Rights

Weapons can be discovered in various scenarios, including at traffic stops or at the airport. Sometimes, this means that weapons were discovered in a way that infringed upon your rights, such as an illegal search and seizure. It’s critical to have an attorney who understands the intricacies of the law and can challenge any evidence that the district attorneys might have obtained unlawfully.

What Is Criminal Possession Of A Weapon?

It’s not a secret that New York’s gun laws are some of the toughest in the country. In the state of New York, it is illegal to unlawfully possess an unregistered gun or firearm. It is also illegal to possess a weapon with the intent to use that weapon in an unlawful manner against another person. Weapons can include:

  • Firearms or guns
  • Knives, switchblades or daggers
