Miami Criminal Defense Attorney / Miami Federal Gun Crimes Attorney

Miami Federal Gun Crimes Attorney

When it comes to crimes involving firearms, there are two different laws involved: state and federal. Federal gun charges refer to charges imposed by federal prosecutors, while state gun charges refer to charges imposed by the state where you live.

Firearms violations are aggressively used in prosecuting violent crime. The mandatory and enhanced punishments for many firearms violations can be used as leverage to gain plea bargaining and cooperation from offenders. Firearm charges are often more severe when guns are used during a drug crime, such as trafficking.

Federal gun charges are much more serious charges, as they are subject to stiffer sentences than state gun charges. In fact, you could face a mandatory minimum sentence. This is why you must contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible for advice if you have federal firearm charges against you. Asilia Law Firm has the knowledge and experience to defend you from these charges. We’re ready to get you the justice you deserve. Contact our Miami federal gun crimes attorney today.

Examples of Federal Gun Crimes

Federal gun charges encompass a variety of offenses. Some examples include the following:

  • Illegal possession of a firearm. This includes possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, drug addict, or illegal immigrant, as well as possession of a firearm in a federally restricted area such as a school zone or federal building.
  • Trafficking of firearms. Trafficking involves the illegal buying, selling, or transporting of firearms across state lines or internationally. This charge may involve the sale of firearms without a license or the smuggling of firearms into the country.
  • Use of a firearm in the commission of a crime. Using a firearm during the commission of a violent crime or drug trafficking offense can result in additional federal charges and increased penalties.
  • Straw purchases. This involves someone purchasing a firearm on behalf of a person who is prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms.
  • Illegal sale or transfer of firearms. This includes selling firearms without a license, selling firearms to prohibited persons, or transferring firearms to individuals who are not legally allowed to possess them.
  • Possession of illegal firearms. Certain types of firearms, such as fully automatic weapons, certain types of modified firearms, or firearms with obliterated serial numbers, are illegal to possess under federal law.
  • Falsifying information on firearms transaction records. Knowingly providing false information on federal firearms transaction records or forms is a federal offense.
