New York City Weapons and Gun Possession Lawyer
New York City is "the city that never sleeps." And to that end, neither does the New York City Police Department. Any New York City Possession of a Weapon or Gun Defense Lawyer will tell you, with all the tumult in NYC a densely populated area that has millions and millions of people, there is little of no tolerance from Law Enforcement or The Office of the District Attorney from any of the five boroughs of NYC. In fact any NYC Criminal Lawyer who handles Gun Crimes and Illegal Possession of a Weapon Cases will tell you that NYC has some of the toughest Hand Gun Laws in the country. In fact, NYC Criminal Lawyers have an uphill battle with The Office of the District Attorney in any of the five boroughs, especially if the handgun is loaded. If you are caught with an illegal loaded handgun in New York City, under the Law you will be charged with a Felony and there is mandatory incarceration. The only way to carry a legal handgun in NYC is to have the handgun licensed in New York City. Very often travelers to New York City bring their guns into NYC and think there is no problem as the gun is licensed in the jurisdiction where they live. Then, unfortunately, they find out the laws are more restrictive in NYC and it's too late; they've been arrested. Even if you are flying into New York City the TSA rules do not protect you. New York City also has strict laws on automatic weapons. Also a knife or knives, switchblades, a gravity knife, billy clubs, nunchuks, box cutters, mace and tazors, just to name a few, come under strict laws. There are many issues with a knife. Was it concealed? How long is the blade? What type of knife is it? Is it a tool of the profession of the person in possession of the weapon? All of these factors need to be verified. Even a weapon that is in your possession for self-defense must be legal under New York State law as well as NYC law. Before you carry a gun or weapon in NYC it is important to read both the Penal Law as well as any New York City Codes. If you are arrested and charged with a crime for a Weapons Possession, immediately contact a New York City Gun Crimes and Possession of a Weapon Lawyer.
