Many people who face firearm charges have never been in trouble with the law before. Often it can be a case that a gun or ammunition is not stored correctly, or someone possesses a handgun, rifle or other firearm which they are not licensed to carry. Many people also do not realise that the penalties for firearms offences have increased dramatically in past years and can find themselves potentially facing a lengthy sentence of imprisonment.
Due to the seriousness of being charged with a firearm offence, it is essential that you get quality legal advice at the earliest opportunity. The defence team at Culshaw Miller Criminal Lawyers can assist you in the complexity of firearms legislation and building your best defence.
Our team can also assist with reviews of applications before the Registrar of Firearms for licenses as well as fit and proper person applications.
