Firearms & Weapons Charges

San Antonio Weapons Charge Lawyer Defends You from Serious Weapons Charges

Get the benefit of a strong legal representative

In Texas, weapons charges vary in severity. There are numerous misdemeanor weapons charges, but also felony charges that carry significant jail time and other major penalties. You need the assistance of an experienced attorney to help you through the legal process when you face weapons charges. I have more than 27 years of experience as a prosecutor and defense attorney, and through my firm, Kevin L. Collins, P.C. I aggressively defend clients’ rights throughout their cases.

Texas has a number of different weapons-related charges

The types of weapons charges that you face depend on the circumstances of your arrest. As your criminal defense attorney, I diligently analyze all details surrounding your case to determine if the arrest was legal and what the circumstances were that led to the arrest. After I uncover all facts, I create a personalized, aggressive defense for you. I defend clients in cases such as:

  • Illegal possession of a weapon
  • Assault with a weapon
  • Using a weapon to make threats
  • Illegal sale or distribution of weapons

Most felony weapons charges involve the violent use of weapons or the intent to use weapons violently. Also, if you have a criminal record including violent crimes or other felonies and you are found in possession of a weapon, you face much more serious penalties than a first-time offender. When weapons charges are classified as federal crimes, you could face imprisonment, strict probation, community service, major fines and more.

Concealed carry laws in San Antonio

In the state of Texas, you can legally obtain a concealed carry permit allowing you to carry a concealed handgun in public. However, even with a permit there are still some places that you cannot legally carry a handgun. These include bars, sporting events, jails, hospitals, amusement parks and churches. You may also not have a weapon if you are known to be in a gang or are committing any illegal activity.
