Types of Weapons Charges
Weapons charges don’t always mean you have harmed someone. They could simply be charges of illegally possessing a firearm or carrying one illegally. Other types of gun crimes in the state of Texas include:
- Illegal sale or transportation of weapons
- Bringing a weapon where it’s not allowed
- Illegally discharging a firearm
- Using a firearm to commit a crime
You may be charged if someone informs the police of the crime, your possession of a firearm or they may find the weapon during a traffic stop. Depending on the nature of the crime and the weapon, you could be looking at a misdemeanor or felony charge.
In addition, if you’re convicted of a domestic assault crime, whether it involved a weapon or not, you cannot legally possess a firearm for five years after your release date or your probation.
