Dallas Weapons Attorney

Weapons charges are an important issue in Texas because guns are a part of state culture. Texans value the second amendment and occasionally overstep the line. The most common weapons charges in the Dallas area include:

  • Carrying a handgun without a permit. It is a felony if loaded and outside your home or place of business; otherwise, it is a misdemeanor.
  • Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
  • Possession of a weapon in connection with another offense
  • Possession of a firearm in connection with domestic violence
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Possession of an assault weapon
  • Firearms trafficking
  • Fraud in obtaining a firearms permit
  • Illegal weapons enhancement. Possession of a pistol that can hold more than 10 rounds, for instance, is a felony.

It is also illegal to possess grenades and bombs, brass knuckles, switchblade knives and certain chemical sprays.
