Weapons Charges in Greater Fort Worth, Texas

GET INDIVIDUALIZED ATTENTION FROM A BOARD CERTIFIED FORT WORTH CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY

Under the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, all gun regulations fall in the United States. According to the Amendment, "a well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." It would be considered as unconstitutional and invalid if a state law violates the “right to bear arms.”

Even though carrying arms is a constitutional right, there are certain weapons that are prohibited to be carried by Texas law especially without the proper permits.

  • Machine guns
  • Rifles with barrels less than 16 inches in length
  • Shotguns with barrels less than 18 inches in length
  • Explosives such as grenades and bombs
  • Switchblade knives
  • Brass knuckles
  • Improvised handguns (zip guns)

If anyone is found to have possession of any of these weapons then one could face serious penalties. Chances are, you might also be charged. Even carrying a switchblade or brass knuckles is a Class A misdemeanor, which can land you in jail for a year and a fine up to $4000. Possessing any other illegal weapon is a third-degree felony, which results in 2 to 10 years in prison and fines up to $10,000.
