Chicago, IL Weapons Charges Lawyers
Illinois Illegal Gun Possession Lawyer in Waukegan and Little Village
If you have been arrested for or charged with a weapons violation, you could be facing serious penalties if you are convicted, especially if you have a prior criminal record. Illinois' gun laws are stricter than the gun laws in many other states. In Chicago, all firearms must be registered. Illinois is one of the few states where it is illegal to carry a concealed rifle, handgun or shotgun because no permits allow carrying a concealed weapon in Illinois. For more information, see Illinois' Gun Laws Common Questions and Answers.
Not only are Illinois' gun laws tough-gun violations and weapons charges are strictly enforced and prosecuted. If you are convicted of the unlawful possession, use, or discharge of a gun or weapon, you can face a mandatory prison sentence. If you used a gun or weapon while committing another crime such as car theft or burglary, you face increased penalties if convicted.
