Attorney Kirk Truslow is prepared to defend clients against any number of weapons-related offenses, including but not limited to the following:
- Unlawful possession: This offense refers to a felon in illegal possession of a weapon, or possession without the appropriate license for the weapon. Also, convicted felons may not be in possession of ammunition or other weapons-related contraband. Further, the law makes no exception for weapons that are inoperable, disassembled, locked up or otherwise out of use.
- Firearms trafficking: This offense refers to the smuggling of weapons or ammunition, not to be confused with illegal import or export. If firearms are transported across state lines or national borders, the crime is prosecuted at the federal level.
