Texas has implemented some extremely rigid laws that strictly regulate a person's right to possess and use a gun or other type of weapon. Violations of these laws are taken very seriously, and a conviction can lead to severe penalties and the loss of certain constitutional rights.
Many weapons violations are simple misunderstandings that involve no criminal intent whatsoever. No matter what type of charge you may be facing, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified attorney. At the law firm of Kearney | Wynn, we represent clients in a wide array of state and federal weapons cases, including the illegal possession of a firearm. Our Fort Worth defense lawyers have extensive experience with these matters, and we are committed to protecting your rights above all else.
