About New York Firearm Offenses

In the state of New York, firearms offense charges can have very severe consequences. New York has some of the sternest laws concerning firearms possession in the country. Guns that are perfectly legal to possess in many other states are often illegal to possess in New York. In NYC, gun permits are almost impossible to obtain, and strong fines and penalties follow firearms-related convictions, including mandatory imprisonment terms in many cases. Those charged with firearms offenses will need aggressive defense to ensure their rights and freedoms are protected to the greatest extent possible.

If you or someone you love has been charged with a firearms offense, you are urged to contact a New York criminal defense lawyer as quickly as possible to explore your options in defending your case.
