The Right Approach For The Right Situation

Firearms law covers more than just civil rights

On Behalf of | Dec 3, 2018 | Firearms Law

Firearms law involves more than just one’s Second Amendment right to bear arms. In addition to civil rights, it also cross-sects with criminal defense, estate planning and other areas of law. Therefore, if a person in Pennsylvania is facing legal problems with regards to possessing a firearm, it is important to seek the assistance of one familiar with the many different types of firearm legal issues.

For example, a person might be facing charges of illegal possession of a firearm, or they may be accused of committing a crime with the use of a firearm. Alternatively, a person may have been the subject of a protective order preventing them from owning a firearm. Certain mental illnesses or having a criminal record could also sometimes make it difficult for a person to obtain a firearm or concealed carry permit. If a person is denied the right to possess a firearm, it is important that they understand why. And, firearms can have a great deal of family value, but passing them on in a will or trust is more complex than passing on other kinds of assets.

In the end, firearms law touches people in many different aspects of life. From being denied a hunting permit to being accused of committing a violent crime with a weapon, it is important that those facing firearms legal issues have the assistance they need to understand the law and how it applies to their case.
