Firearms Offences

Have You Been Charged With A Firearms Offence?

Firearms offences vary from possessing firearms to being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm. Possessing an imitation firearm can be considered a firearm offence.

The Courts often impose very harsh penalties for firearm offences.

Some issues in firearms cases are;

  • Was the firearm / gun capable of being used?
  • Why did you have the firearm / gun with you on that particular day?

We work with you to put the offending in a context that makes a Judge understand it and for them to see how the firearms offence came about.
