In today’s society, issues concerning the possession and use of guns and firearms are hotly contested. Although the Second Amendment states that all citizens have the right to bear arms, each state has its own rules and restrictions that regulate the sale and use of guns and firearms. Like many states, New Jersey requires its residents to carry a valid license in order to own handguns, rifles, or other firearms. The rules for obtaining a license are often complicated and heavily enforced, allowing people to face charges even if they are unaware that they committed any crime. At the Law Office of Adrienne D. Edward P.C., we understand the complexity of state and federal laws concerning guns and firearms, and we are fully prepared to defend your rights and ensure that you obtain the best possible outcome.
Essentially, gun laws in New Jersey can be divided into two areas: the process of lawfully obtaining, selling, and registering a firearm, and the consequences of violating any of these rules. Many gun charges stem from people who have misunderstood the registration process and then found themselves in illegal possession of a firearm. If you are charged with the illegal possession of a firearm, you could face significant consequences, including jail time and expensive fines. Whether you have questions about the registration process in New Jersey or you are currently facing a gun charge, you need to speak to a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney who can provide you with the answers and support you need.
