Types Of Florida Weapons Offenses

Weapons offenses charges in Florida range from misdemeanors to felonies, depending on the type of offense. Examples of these charges include:

  • Concealed carry of a gun without a permit
  • Improper exhibition of a weapon
  • Altering or removing firearm serial numbers
  • Possession of prohibited firearms or ammo
  • Felon in possession of a firearm
  • Unlawful purchase of a firearm
  • Aggravated assault with a firearm
  • Domestic violence aggravated assault
  • Armed robbery
  • Armed burglary
  • Shooting at a vehicle or building

Misdemeanor offenses can result in jail time and surrender of your gun rights. Violent crimes committed with a firearm require mandatory minimum prison sentences. Any type of gun offense calls for a skilled and strategic defense. We handle these and other types of weapon-related charges.

We know how to make a strong case for self-defense when appropriate.
