Weapons Offense Cases We Handle in New Hampshire
In New Hampshire, a license is not required to openly carry or carry a concealed pistol or revolver in public. However, certain persons are not allowed to possess guns, such as convicted felons, those deemed mentally ill, and those convicted of domestic violence. Massachusetts does require a license to possess firearms. In both states, you may be subject to federal laws as well.
Any arrest for a violent crime — including domestic violence, robbery, or a sex crime — can become more uncertain for the accused when a weapons charge is involved. Those convicted of three or more felonies of specific categories also face severe penalties of 10 to 40 years in prison and fines of up to $25,000 if found possessing a gun.
