Other California Weapons Charges

No matter where you are in the country, you may face severe punishment for brandishing or using a weapon such as a gun. However, California weapons laws are especially strict, and weapons charges must be taken seriously.

There are many types of weapons charges in California. The most well-known of these charges involve firearms and include unlawful possession, discharging a gun with gross negligence, selling a firearm illegally, using a firearm in committing a homicide or other crime, and many more.

There are also California weapons laws regarding items other than guns. Possessing or using dangerous weapons also can be illegal. These include:

  • Knives
  • Brass knuckles
  • Swords
  • Baseball bats
  • Martial arts weapons

California weapons charges are often considered felonies. If convicted of a felony, you will not only be prevented from bearing arms ever again, but you will also be subject to a prison term and hefty fines. A felony conviction can make finding a job impossible and tear apart your family.
