Illegal Possession of a Gun

Many times as a Rochester Criminal Defense Attorney, I will be asked what can happen if you are caught and charged with illegal possession of a gun or handgun.

  • In order to obtain or handle a handgun, you must possess a permit.
  • If you are caught with an illegal handgun at your home or business, you will be charged with a misdemeanor.
  • If you are caught with it on your persons, it is considered a felony.
  • You could see jail time if you are caught possessing a handgun without a license.
