Weapons Crimes Archives

Weapons laws cover more than just guns and knives

Floridians are expected to follow all laws in the state, including those regarding carrying weapons. Contrary to popular belief, knives and guns aren't the only weapons covered by state statutes. The rules are very specific, and you can face criminal charges for not abiding by them.

Anger can make you do uncharacteristic things

Having a temper can make you act in an abnormal manner. For some, this can lead to violent tendencies. Unfortunately, the inability to control those can lead to criminal charges. These can actually be very serious, especially if there is a weapon involved. It is imperative that you think carefully about what you are going to do to manage your anger when things get really heated. Obviously, pulling out a knife or a gun isn't usually the correct course of action.

Situations matter when you fight weapons charges

Many people feel the need to carry a weapon of some sort to help keep them safe. What they might not realize is that the need to feel safe could eventually lead them to face some type of criminal charge because of it. They might not even think about what might happen, but it is a chance they take.

Facing weapons charges? Think about your defense!

Many people think that they need to carry a weapon for personal protection. This is perfectly understandable, but you must ensure that you are following the law so that you don't face criminal charges for carrying the weapon. We know that this is a difficult spot to be placed in, especially when you thought you were doing things within the bounds of the law.

Practice safety when shooting on private land

Part of owning a gun is being responsible with it. You have to ensure that you know the current laws so that you don't break them. Facing a weapons charge is very serious and something that should be avoided. If you are convicted of one of these criminal matters, you can lose your right to carry a firearm for the remainder of your life.

Can you still buy an AR-15 in Florida?

The AR-15 is one of the most common and popular rifles in the country, but it is also one of the most controversial. Some have called for "assault weapons" like the AR-15 to be banned. They are designed along similar lines as military weapons -- they're auto-loaders, for instance, with a semi-automatic firing system -- and they have large-capacity magazines.

Brass knuckles are not just made of metal

Brass knuckles, as the name implies, are traditionally made of metal. They saw a lot of exposure in combat in the early part of the last century -- in both world wars -- and metal designs were tough and easy to produce. In many cases, they were actually attached to other weapons, like knives. They were a last resort for soldiers in a close-quarters battle.
