Fort Bend County Weapon Offenses Attorney

Enlist the Help of an Experienced Former Prosecutor

While Texas laws often support the rights of citizens to carry guns, there are still strict laws regarding the proper contexts where a person can carry a weapon. When a person has been arrested for a weapon offense, a conviction can affect their ability to own guns, and can even keep them from employment—many employers equate weapons charges with violent crimes.


Texas weapon offenses include:

  • Illegally owning or carrying a firearm
  • Illegally selling a firearm
  • Allowing a child access to an unsecured gun
  • Improperly discharging a weapon
  • Using a weapon to commit a crime

Texas became an open-carry state for handguns in 2016, but citizens still need a concealed handgun license in order to open-carry. Occasionally we’ll see citizens charged with a weapons offense after being frisked for an unrelated reason—adding an extra penalty without added wrongdoing. If you were arrested for unlawfully possessing or carrying a firearm, turn to The Sims Law Firm for relentless, experienced defense of your rights.
