Concealed Weapon Charges Lawyer Defending Your Rights
The second amendment of the United States Constitution is the right to bear arms. This means that American citizens are allowed to own and use weapons in a lawful manner, such as to protect themselves, their loved ones, or their property from an imminent threat. However, there are several laws concerning the possession and use of these arms.
Let our Seattle concealed weapon charges lawyer teach you about these laws so you can legally carry a concealed weapon in public. In order to lawfully carry a concealed weapon, you need a permit obtained from taking a concealed carry class. This class teaches you the proper methods to care for and use a handgun or other concealable weapon. If you violate the law by carrying a weapon without a permit or misuse your right to carry a concealed weapon, you may face a weapons charge.

If you have been falsely accused of owning or using a weapon, we attempt to gather evidence to prove that you were not in possession of a weapon during the incident in question.

It is important to know the laws surrounding weapons concerning their possession and use. Decorative or collector’s knives are not illegal in certain states, so can be kept for display purposes. There are also legal ways to use a weapon, such as in self-defense or when mutual consent is involved, such as a combat situation where all parties agree to the use of a weapon.
