While gun laws in New Hampshire and Massachusetts may be less restrictive than elsewhere in the U.S., you are still subject to both state and federal laws that can have serious consequences if violated. Guns used in the commission of other crimes will lead to more serious penalties upon a conviction. If you are facing an arrest connected with a violation of gun laws or if you need legal advice concerning your legal use of a gun, seek the help of our Portsmouth gun crime attorney at Wiberg Law Office, PLLC.
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.
