Do You Know the Laws on Firearms?

In California, there are strict state and federal laws concerning firearms. Though California does not require a person to have a license in order to carry or buy a firearm, the state does restrict certain individuals from doing so. This, along with strict federal laws that can also affect you in the state of California, makes it possible to break firearms law accidentally.

Firearm crimes can also extend to ammunition and other items related to guns. Between California state law and federal law, there are many possible offenses you could face in a firearms crime case.

Misdemeanors & Firearm Bans

In California, there are about 40 misdemeanors that impose a firearms ban on you if convicted. If you have a misdemeanor conviction, it is important to know if it also affects your ability to possess a firearm. Arming yourself with this knowledge means you may avoid being charged with a firearms crime.

Because of the extent of California's strict firearms laws, combined with federal firearms laws, it is possible to accidentally break the law without knowing it. However, ignorance of the law is not a defense. Whether you are looking for more information on how these laws affect you, or your best defense option in a firearms case, seek experienced legal representation to guide you through the process.

“It was strongly recommended that I call federal defense attorney Michael L. Guisti. He had several investigators look at records and such, and my federal case was dismissed. Michael Guisti does what few attorneys can do, beat the federal government, and that is why if you’re in trouble with the government you need to call Michael Guisti right away!”
