Gun Charges

Joliet, Illinois Firearms Lawyer

The possession and use of firearms in Illinois is governed by multiple statutes, including the Illinois’ Criminal Code, Wildlife Code, and Firearm Owner’s Identification Act. Illinois’ weapons laws are complex and include a number of specific regulations and exceptions. In addition to the requirement that gun owners obtain a Firearm Owner Identification Card (FOID) to own a weapon in Illinois, there are also laws regarding how weapons can be stored, transported, and used.

Considering the intricacy of these gun laws, even a law-abiding firearms owner could easily end up missing a minor detail and facing firearms charges. Penalties for gun crimes are strict and often include large fines and jail time.  If you’ve been charged with a weapons offense in Illinois, contact an experienced Joliet gun charges defense lawyer to discuss your case.
