weapons-offenseViolations of any of the many, many statutes governing our constitutional right to transport, carry, manufacture, possess and use weapons of a deadly nature can result in serious consequences. If convicted, depending on the type of weapon, you could face significant prison time, fines or community service. Additionally, whenever a firearm is used to commit a crime, additional penalties will be imposed if an individual is convicted.

Weapons offenses don’t only involve firearms and knives, but can also include things such as wrenches, baseball bats, bricks or anything which could actually cause death, including a motor vehicle. A person could be charged with carrying a concealed weapon, aggravated or reckless discharge of a firearm, unlawful use of a firearm, unlawful possession or trafficking and distribution.

Many individuals are not aware of all the legal nuances that come with our second amendment right to bear arms. For example, every person who owns a gun in Illinois must have a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID). If law enforcement finds you to be in possession of a gun without the FOID card, you are in serious legal trouble. This is why you need an experienced attorney like Kevin M. Rosner at your side.
