Weapons Trafficking Lawyers

On the Rules and Loopholes of Weapon Ownership

The right to bear arms isn’t a one-size-fits-all privilege, buddy. You need to jump through a few legal hoops, and mind you, those hoops are very unforgiving. The whole circus stands on some basic principles. If you’re a law-abiding Joe with a clean legal slate, you can probably get yourself a firearm. But if you’ve ever been hauled behind bars or have mental health issues, then forget about it! Your chances of getting your hands on a gun legally are about as thin as a sheet of paper on a windy day.

Got a Gun to Sell?

Selling a gun is a horse of a different color, my friend. Your right to sell a weapon and your right to own one are two different things, a bit like apples and oranges. For starters, you need to ensure that the weapon will be registered under the new owner’s name. Secondly, you need to make sure they’re actually allowed to own a weapon. Failure to do so wouldn’t just be like shooting yourself in the foot, it could land you smack dab in the middle of a weapons trafficking charge. No laughing matter, that!

What About If the Guy I Sold to Commits a Crime?

Here’s where it gets a bit hairy. If the person you sold a gun goes on a crime spree with it, it’s going to be as if you had pulled the trigger yourself. You could face charges from simple possession of a weapon to murder. Yes, you heard right, murder!

Innocently Provided a Weapon?

Now don’t give me that woebegone face yet. The law here does give some leeway in terms of intent. If you were genuinely clueless and sold a weapon thinking it was all hunky-dory, you may be able to dodge that nasty trafficking bullet.

But I Thought I Could Sell My Gun…

Sure, the U.S. law permits the sale of privately-owned firearms without much fuss. And yes, you may argue that you just thought the weapon was fine to be sold. But let me tell you pal, make sure you know what your state laws have to say about this. Because what works in one state might not hold water in another.

Driving with a Weapon

Take for instance, New York City. Having a gun you’re legally allowed to possess in another state may get your brows furrowing if you attempt to bring it over here. Even if you had no confounded idea or intention to sell or commit a crime, the boys in blue might just charge you with trafficking anyway.

Trouble Up to Here? Call Spodek Law Group

If you ever find yourself entangled in a weapons trafficking charge, it’s an absolute must to pick up the phone and call Todd Spodek, definitely the ace of attorneys. He’ll dive into your case, take a long, hard look at the evidence and carve out a rock-solid defense for you. And whatever you do, bite your tongue when the law comes knocking. You don’t want to blurt out anything that could end up playing against you.

Remember, everything’s fair in love, war, and weapons charges. Learn your rights like the back of your hand, and keep them well within sight. You’re not obliged to play Sherlock Holmes for the prosecution nor do anything else to tie a noose around your own neck.

Weapons trafficking is no small deal, it can lead to a long, unwanted holiday in a federal jail. So stay safe, stay smart, and remember the call you need to make is to Todd Spodek at the Spodek Law Group.
