If you or a loved one is facing weapons charges or gun charges in Arizona, you must move quickly. Your decision now can mean the difference between freedom and prison time. You don’t want to live your life in confinement. You don’t want to sacrifice your home, your family, and your children. That’s why you need legal representation you can count on. An attorney who has expertise in defending against weapons charges. A lawyer – like Paul Ramos – who will be by your side every step of the way.
There’s a difference between the right to bear arms and the use of a gun in committing a crime. Arizona has lenient laws when it comes to gun ownership, but tough laws when it comes to gun crimes. Those crimes can range from displaying a gun in certain ways to gun transport, and from weapon defacement to improperly discharging a weapon. Using a gun in the commission of a felony and possessing a gun when arrested on even a minor drug charge are both serious offenses.
In Arizona, weapons aren’t limited to guns. Under the law, a weapon is anything that can endanger or threaten another person – a stick, a rock, a golf club – as well as bombs, chemicals, and grenades.
Punishments for a weapons conviction vary greatly, ranging from a few months in jail for carrying a concealed weapon without a permit to three or more years in prison for providing a gun to a person who you know is going to use it to commit a crime.
There are many ways to win a weapons case in Arizona, as well as ways to get the charges reduced and penalties minimized. Some of the most common defenses Paul Ramos uses are:
