Fighting For Your Right To Bear Arms

In Virginia, you do not have to register a firearm or obtain a permit before purchasing one. However, the state takes weapons violations seriously and a conviction can result in the loss of your ability to own a firearm permanently.

Common weapons crimes include:

  • Carrying a concealed weapon without a valid permit
  • Brandishing a firearm
  • Possessing a firearm after a felony conviction
  • Possessing a firearm on school property
  • Possessing a firearm while possessing drugs
  • Committing a felony while using, attempting to use or displaying a firearm
  • Maliciously fire a gun in a building

Convictions for weapons crimes in Virginia can lead to significant consequences, including fines, imprisonment and the potential loss of future firearm ownership rights. Depending on the offense and your criminal history, you could face a felony conviction and years behind bars. This highlights the necessity of having a criminal defense lawyer who is deeply familiar with weapons laws and the legal defenses available.
