What You Should Know About Firearms Offenses And Gun Rights

Pennsylvania’s gun laws are stricter than those in many states. Because of this, gun-related criminal charges and sentence enhancements are common. At Marros Law Office, LLC, we are prepared to represent you against nearly any criminal charges, including firearms offenses and those related to unlawful possession of a gun.

Offenses Involving A Firearm

We regularly represent clients facing a variety of gun-related charges, including:

  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Armed robbery
  • Straw purchases
  • Illegal possession (persons not to possess a firearm)
  • Carrying a firearm without a concealed carry permit
  • Charges related to defending your home and family (also called the castle doctrine or stand your ground)

Deadly Weapon Enhancements

Sometimes being in possession of a gun while committing an unrelated crime can lead to sentence enhancements, even if the gun was not used nor intended to be used in the commission of the crime.

As an example, someone could be arrested in the middle of a drug deal after exiting their vehicle and meeting the buyer on a street corner. If police search the vehicle and find a gun in the trunk, the suspect might face deadly weapon enhancements that could significantly increase his sentence.

This is a common practice used by prosecutors. We will do all we can to fight these allegations and attempt to show that the firearm was not used (nor intended to be used) in the crime.
