Fort Bend County Weapon Offenses Attorney
Enlist the Help of an Former Prosecutor in the Greater Houston Area
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
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.
