Weapons Possession Restrictions
Compared to other states, Texas has some of the most lenient weapons possession laws. However, even with this leniency, people in Texas still have to adhere to weapons possession restrictions that are in place, or risk being in violation of the law. The penalties that can come with illegal weapon possession can be severe and potentially including hefty fines or even jail time in some circumstances.
When you are accused of violating Texas’s weapons possession laws, you need a legal team on your side that can help you understand your options and protect your legal rights. The attorneys of Alexander & Associates understand how stressful these charges can be, and we help Lewisville residents stand up for their freedom when facing weapons possession charges.
Common Firearm Possession Law Violations
Most people can purchase and possess firearms in the state of Texas. However, the possession of certain firearms and weapons or the general possession of weapons by restricted individuals can have legal consequences. Four common violations of weapons possession law include:
- Violating a concealed handgun license, such as carrying in a restricted area
- Illegally selling a firearm
- Illegally discharging a weapon
- Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
These actions could qualify as violations of the state’s firearm possession laws, despite Texas’s relative tolerance regarding the purchase, sale, and possession of firearms.
