While the state of Florida has relatively relaxed gun laws, there are still many ways to get into trouble with weapons here. And since the penalties for weapons charges can be severe, including hefty fines and jail time, having a good weapons defense attorney on your side is a smart move. There are a lot of gray areas when it comes to the personal carry and use of weapons, which may include things like: handguns, hunting rifles, knives, tasers or other electronic weapons, tear gas guns, and many more. Often, weapons charges go along with another criminal or civil charge, so it’s important to get yourself a good attorney who can understand the entire situation, and work hard to get you a favorable outcome in court.
The laws surrounding areas where you are and are not allowed to carry weapons can be complex and hard to follow at times. Likewise, there is a lot of confusion around Florida’s “stand your ground” laws, and when it is acceptable to use force, even deadly force, against an invader. Transportation and sales of weaponry can also have its loopholes, and it’s common for people to fall through the cracks.
