Weapons Charges in Silver Spring,
Frederick, & Hagerstown

Crimes Involving Firearms and Other Weapons in Maryland

Were you accused of a weapons crime in the Silver Spring, Maryland area? The first thing you will need to do is ensure that you are represented by a skilled attorney. I am a Silver Spring criminal defense lawyer who handles various types of weapons crimes, among various other areas of criminal defense.

The state of Maryland has laws that govern the use of weapons such as handguns, assault pistols and detachable magazines, "dangerous weapons" (i.e., switchblade knives, metal knuckles, bowie knives, etc.) and destructive devices.

Common types of weapons crimes include:

  • possessing a weapon without the proper licensing
  • possessing a weapon that is banned
  • concealing certain type of weapons
  • taking weapons onto certain locations where they are not allowed
  • unlawfully transporting a firearm
  • leaving a loaded firearm where one knows it is accessible to unsupervised children

Challenge Your Charges with the Help of a Silver Spring
Criminal Lawyer

There are many situations in which individuals are arrested for weapons crimes even when they are actually in their right to possess or carry out other actions with their weapons.

For example, a person might have had authorization to possess or carry the weapon as part of his or her employment. Or, the individual might have been lawfully using the weapon for activities such as hunting or target practice. In some cases, the individual's arrest could be based on fabricated allegations, with the person having no actual connection to the weapon in question.

Whatever led to your weapons charges, I can review the details surrounding your arrest and help you assess your legal options for fighting conviction. Weapons crime convictions can lead to damaging penalties, such as extensive jail or prison time, as well as hefty fines.
