Owning a gun is a privilege and a constitutional right enjoyed by United States citizens, particularly Texans. With the possession of a weapon comes great responsibility. To enforce that responsibility and to protect the safety of its citizens, Texas enumerates certain laws to restrict the types of guns that can be purchased, the types of persons who may carry a weapon and the areas in which guns can be carried. Areas that have been designated as weapons free zones include schools, a polling place on election day, a court of law, the airport and the racetrack. If you have previously been convicted of a felony, you are prohibited from owning a weapon.


A violation of Texas gun laws can be either a misdemeanor or a felony and carries swift and harsh punishment, including jail time, community supervision, fines and court costs. Additionaly, conviction and even a mere arrest for a weapons charge may cause you to lose your job. Anyone with weapons or firearms charges should contact an experienced weapons charge defense lawyer in order to evaluate their case and determine any defenses available.
