Defending Weapons Charges And The Right To Bear Arms
I am a firm believer in the Second Amendment. Some states have significantly restricted its scope, but not Louisiana. Our gun laws are some of the least restrictive in the United States. The basis of this loose approach comes from Article 1, Section 11 of our state Constitution of 1974, which reads:
“The right of each citizen to keep and bear arms is fundamental and shall not be infringed. Any restriction on this right shall be subject to strict scrutiny.”
Yet even with this open approach, overzealous law enforcement may still confiscate your legal guns. In addition to defending your constitutional rights against a criminal defense case, an experienced criminal defense attorney knowledgeable in the state’s gun regulations will be extremely helpful in reclaiming weapons improperly confiscated by law enforcement.
Crimes That Can Void Your Gun Rights
Felony convictions and some misdemeanor convictions may preclude you from legally owning firearms. Call me immediately if you might be facing any criminal charge.
Facing Gun Charges?
Each case is unique, but I can often help reduce or dismiss weapons charges if you are currently prohibited from owning a firearm, particularly if there are extenuating circumstances such as self-defense.
