-Second Amendment, U.S. Constitution

As an American and a Coloradan, you are guaranteed the right to keep and bear arms. However, state and federal laws exist to regulate the possession and use of such weapons for various circumstances. Don’t let yourself suffer negative legal consequences simply because you did not know your rights or did not hire a high quality weapons charges or gun crimes attorney.
The consequences of a weapons crime conviction can be incredibly serious, especially because many weapons crimes can carry additional federal punishment. Not only can you potentially suffer jail time and stiff penalties, but your life and livelihood can suffer well into the future, including impacting your ability to find and retain certain jobs. Furthermore, if you have been arrested for a gun charge in relation to another crime, the consequences can be greatly enhanced. Make sure you understand your rights and have a qualified weapons crime attorney like Dana Casper by your side.

- • Are a minor
- • Have been convicted of a felony
