NEW JERSEY DRIVING WITH FIREARM CHARGE LAWYER
Sussex County Weapon Charge Lawyer
New Jersey has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation. While New Jersey residents may be aware of these laws, people traveling through our state may have no idea just how strict these laws are. The failure to comply with these laws can lead to severe penalties, including prison time. It is common for police to stop hunters or out-of-state travelers with firearms in their vehicles. Even if you lawfully possess your gun in another state, you can still face serious criminal charges in New Jersey, depending on the facts of your case. If you have been charged with illegal possession of a firearm, it is vital that you have an attorney who will fight these charges on every front.
We are the Morristown, New Jersey, law firm of Maynard Law Office. Our law firm protects the rights of New Jersey residents and people traveling through the state accused of weapons crimes.
Tough Gun Laws Require Tough Criminal Defense Attorneys
Gun owners traveling into New Jersey must make sure their firearms are not loaded and stored in the trunk of the vehicle. If the vehicle does not have a trunk, the firearms must be stored in a locked container in the back of the vehicle.
Individuals traveling through New Jersey must comply with even more rules. First, you must have legal possession of the firearm in both the state where you came from and the state to which you are going. The firearm and any ammunition must be unloaded and stored in the trunk. If your vehicle does not have a trunk, the gun should be stored in a locked container, as far away from the driver as possible.
Our law firm will look at what happened in your case and explore every potential defense. For example, perhaps you meet all the requirements set out for possessing a firearm in a vehicle. Perhaps the police did not have a reasonable suspicion to pull over your car. Every case is different, and every case has unique opportunities to build your defense. Our New Jersey driving with firearm charge attorneys have the skill and experience to prepare the strongest possible case under the circumstances.
