Understanding Weapon Charges

There are different weapons that can be used in a crime or even just used by an individual for other purposes. The law restricts the use of certain weapons; prohibiting some altogether, requiring a permit for some and limiting the area and type of use regarding some weapons. Shotguns and rifles can be purchased without a weapon, however, hand gun purchase and use will require a permit in the state, along with the necessity of registering the weapon.

A person may face criminal charges for the unlawful possession or sale of a deadly weapon or firearm, as well as face enhanced penalties for carrying or using a weapon in the commission of a crime. The Michigan State Police can be called into action when a person is believed to be in violation of the laws regarding carrying a weapon, or if the weapon is being used in addition to committing a crime such as burglary or assault. Weapons charges are serious. In Michigan, all weapon offenses are harshly prosecuted.
