Defending Your Right To Bear Arms
Do you own a gun? Are you an avid hunter or gamer? Or do you keep a gun in your home to defend against intruders? Perhaps you have a license to carry a concealed weapon for self-defense purposes. There are many important reasons for you to own a gun. However, your right to bear arms seems to be under constant challenge every day.
You have the right to defend yourself, your family and your home. Owning a gun is a constitutional right that our firm will help you protect. At THE WOLF LAW FIRM in Lake Orion, our attorneys can provide legal counsel on gun-related issues.
A Technical Violation Puts Your Second Amendment Rights At Risk
We are dedicated to protecting the Second Amendment gun rights of law-abiding citizens. Firearm ownership is a basic constitutional right. We assist individuals who wish to obtain a gun permit but are having difficulty getting approval. We also help gun owners whose gun rights have been taken away for a technical violation.
In Michigan, you may be convicted of carrying a concealed weapon (CCW). It is illegal to carry a concealed firearm or dangerous weapon if you do not have concealed pistol license (CPL).
Carry Violations — A person shall not carry a pistol or any other dangerous weapon concealed on or about his or her person, or concealed in a vehicle operated or occupied by the person, except in his or her home, place of business or other property he or she owns, without a license to carry the pistol as provided by law. If licensed, the person shall not carry the weapon in a manner inconsistent with the license (Michigan Code of Law 750.227).
A law-abiding citizen may be charged with carrying a concealed weapon for unknowingly breaking the law. For example, an individual may face charges for forgetting that he or she has his or her gun in the holster when going to an airport. Or maybe the individual was in lawful possession of the gun, but was charged with carrying a concealed weapon because the police officer was quick to make an arrest.
Firearm Possession In Commission Of A Felony
In addition to protecting individuals’ Second Amendment gun rights, we also represent individuals who have been charged with possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony. If you have been charged with a felony and are found to be in possession of a firearm, you face a two-year mandatory minimum prison term which will run consecutively to any other prison term given for any other conviction. For example, if you have been charged with selling marijuana and were found carrying a weapon, you will have two years added on to your sentence. Our attorneys will vigorously defend you to minimize the penalties.
When Your Constitutional Rights Are Threatened, You Need Our Team
We will provide a defense strategy based on the circumstances surrounding your arrest. We will explore and investigate any self-defense claim and possible 5th and 6th Amendment constitutional violations which might allow evidence suppression and dismissal of your case.
