Common Problems, Complex Legal Issues
The laws about when, how, and where you may carry a firearm or what constitutes a weapon or an illegal weapon are incredibly complex. Police officers are often forced to make difficult legal decisions in the field. Often this results in arrests that need to be "sorted out" later.
Weapons cases often involve complex issues related to the legality of the search for the weapon. There are also unique defensive issues such as the "traveling defense" that may or may not apply to your case.
