Gun-related Offenses and Trafficking

Gun offenses encompass a range of criminal acts involving the illegal possession, use, or trafficking of firearms. In Arizona, as well as under federal jurisdiction, there are laws and regulations governing the possession and use of firearms, and violations of these laws can result in serious legal consequences. The attorneys at Spector Law represent individuals charged with a variety of offenses in Arizona and in the United States District Court, including:

  1. Illegal Possession of a Firearm: Individuals who are prohibited from possessing firearms, such as convicted felons, individuals with certain domestic violence convictions, or those adjudicated as mentally incompetent, may face charges for illegal possession of a firearm if found in possession of a gun.
  2. Unlawful Discharge of a Firearm: Discharging a firearm in a reckless or negligent manner, such as firing a gun in a public place or within city limits, can result in charges for the unlawful discharge of a firearm.
  3. Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Crime: Using or possessing a firearm during the commission of a crime, such as robbery or drug trafficking, can result in additional charges and enhanced penalties.
  4. Trafficking of Firearms and Conspiracy: Engaging or the conspiring to engage in the illegal sale, transfer, or distribution of firearms, or trafficking firearms across state lines or into the Republic of Mexico without proper authorization, constitutes a serious gun offense under both state and federal law.
  5. Providing a False Statement in the Acquisition of a Firearm: This law prohibits individuals from knowingly providing false information or making false statements in connection with the purchase or acquisition of a firearm from a licensed firearms dealer. If committed, this may result in charges brought forth by the federal government in the United States District Court.
  6. Illegal Modifications or Possession of Banned Firearms: Possessing firearms that have been illegally modified, such as with a shortened barrel or without proper serial numbers, or possessing banned firearms, such as certain types of assault weapons, can result in criminal charges.


These offenses can result in significant penalties, including fines, imprisonment, and the loss of the right to possess firearms.
