Michigan Firearms Offenses

The second amendment offers U.S. citizens the right to keep and bear arms, but within that framework is a complicated maze of federal and state restrictions, which includes laws regarding firearm:

  • sales
  • transportation
  • possession
  • use

For example, even those who have a permit to carry a concealed weapon may not know that in addition to keeping their firearm out of banks, churches, daycare facilities, courts, hospitals, theatres, and establishments licensed under liquor control, there are certain other businesses that may indicate that they do not welcome guns on their property at any time. Ignoring a posted notice could result in a criminal trespass charge.

Common Michigan firearms/weapons charges include:

  • brandishing a firearm in public
  • illegal altercation of a firearm
  • unlawful discharge
  • possession of a concealed weapon
  • possession of a deadly weapon
  • felony firearm
  • felon in possession of a firearm

There are many variables that may influence the extent of charges for a Michigan firearm offense. Was there unreasonable search and seizure? What kind of gun was involved? Was the weapon loaded? Where was the firearm at the time of the incident?

Michigan gun law violations can have serious consequences. Convictions could result in misdemeanor or felony charges, loss of your right to carry a firearm, mandatory jail time and thousands of dollars in fines. It’s important for the accused to swiftly acquire knowledgeable legal counsel.
