Felon Charged with Possession of a Firearm

Get Defense from an Atlanta Criminal Defense Attorney

There are numerous gun crime laws in Georgia. The slightest misstep while in possession of a weapon can leave a person culpable. For those who have had previous convictions on their record, state law does not allow that individual to carry a weapon, nor can they carry ammunition.

Don't have your rights taken away if you are facing the possibility of weapon possession charges. Contact The Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub, P.C. to schedule an appointment today!

Federal Law Provides Exception

Luckily, our attorneys have experience working with both state and federal courts. Under federal law, if a person who was convicted by the state had their offense pardoned or overturned, and the individual is allowed to freely partake in the average citizen's rights, then that person may be allowed to possess a firearm.

These civil rights include:

  • Serving on a jury
  • Hold public office
  • The right to vote
  • Obtain certain professional licenses

After a criminal conviction, many of the rights above are taken away, including the right to purchase and own a firearm, even in one's own private home. That is why you must speak with our Atlanta criminal defense attorneys to ensure that you are protected if you were wrongly accused or if you believe your rights violated.
