Criminal Law

Firearm Charges

Many states have complex weapons laws-specifically firearm laws. Legislators try to balance protecting society by banning certain weapons, or use of firearms, with upholding citizens' Second Amendment Rights (Right to Bear Arms). Missouri's gun laws and weapons laws are complicated as well. If you are charged with a weapons offense, such as unlawful use of a firearm or unlawful possession of a firearm, contact an attorney to discuss your rights.

At The Hammon Law Firm, the firearms charge lawyers understand Missouri's firearms laws and can properly advise you regarding your charges. They will apply the law to the facts of your case and evaluate whether the prosecution can prove all the elements of the offense. Additionally, they will advise you of your rights and work diligently to achieve the best possible outcome for you. Included in this effort is filing motions to suppress evidence, which can lead to dismissal of the case, if perhaps the search and seizure of the weapon was unconstitutional. The knowledgeable weapons charge attorneys at The Hammon Law Firm will evaluate the validity of the search warrant, the basis of the probable cause for the search warrant, and the search and seizure itself.
