Facing Weapons Charges?
Get Defense from Our Broken Arrow Criminal Defense Lawyers
Gun control is a topic of contention and opinions are divisive on how much
freedom should be given to individuals. Most will agree, however, that
citizen safety is the number one priority. Although Oklahoma is considered
an “open carry” state, there are still many restrictions on
the purchase and ownership of guns. Those who have been previously convicted
of a felony may not lawfully own a gun, unless they have been pardoned,
as an example.
If you are facing weapons charges, you deserve to know your rights and
what your legal options are for defense.

Your Rights in Oklahoma
There are many scenarios that prosecutors will evaluate when reviewing
a weapons charge case. The way the weapon was used in the incident plays
some part in this. Using a firearm while committing a felony, for example,
is one distinct type of offense.
Weapons charges may include the following:
- Minor in possession of a firearm
- Possessing a firearm near or on school grounds
- Unlawful transportation of firearms
- Felony discharge of a firearm
- Assault or battery with a dangerous weapon
- Discharge of a stun gun, mace, tear gas against an officer
- Carrying firearms while under the influence of alcohol
- Purchasing weapons for mentally incompetent individuals
If you are facing any form of weapons charges, it is imperative that you
act quickly and seek legal representation. Our Broken Arrow criminal defense
