Call us if you have a question.

Brandishing a Firearm: You may be legally allowed to carry the weapon but if you point it or wave it in a manner as to induce fear in someone that can result in a criminal charge.

Weapons at Airport- Some weapons are legal for you to own but the airport bans carrying a weapon in a terminal so check all your bags before you travel to make sure you have not left a weapon in a suitcase.

Reckless Handling of Firearm: Accidents happen but when it comes to firearms you can be charged if it can be proven you handled the firearm in a way as to endanger others. This can often happen during hunting season and then your hunting license can be suspended or revoked.
