SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

What are common types of weapons crimes in New York City?

Most people understand that there are things they are and are not allowed to do when it comes to how they buy, sell and use weapons. When somebody crosses the line, there is always the chance that the authorities could step in and make an arrest.

There are many types of weapons and gun crimes that include, but are not limited to, the following:

Illegal use of a firearmSale of illegal weaponsLicensing violationsIllegal possession of a firearm or weapon in a person's vehicle or home

As you can see, some weapons and gun crimes are more serious than others. The potential consequences associated with a licensing violation, for example, may not be as severe as those for using a weapon to commit a serious crime, such as robbery or burglary.

Weapons crimes come about for a number of reasons, but in many cases they occur when a police officer stops a person for a traffic violation and searches the vehicle. To stop a vehicle within the legal limits of the law, an officer must have reason to do so. They cannot simply assume that a person has committed a crime for one reason or another.

With so many details associated with weapons crimes in New York, it is safe to assume that a person should never attempt to defend him or herself in court against these serious charges/

This blog post does not encompass all areas of weapons and gun crimes, but it does show that there are many types police are looking for. For this reason, it is often best to consult with an attorney who has specific knowledge of this area of the law.
