Weapon Charges in Fort Bend County

Houston Gun Crime Attorney

With so much media attention presented to weapons charges and offenses in the past few years, it is important that if you or a loved one were arrested and charged with violating the Texas Penal Code §46.05 that you obtain the representation of an aggressive Houston Criminal Defense Lawyer today. At Stornello & Correro Law Firm, PLLC, we understand the penalties that you may be faced with and will actively pursue a favorable outcome for your weapons charge case.

The state of Texas is known for its lenient gun laws, but also strict penalties for individuals who violate any of the gun laws. In Texas, you do not have to register a firearm or adhere to a waiting period in order to obtain a firearm. There are many ways to legally carry a weapon in Texas, including transporting firearms in your car. But there are also many ways to violate these laws, such as illegally discharging a weapon within the city limits or carrying a firearm while in possession of illegal drugs. Illegal possession of a weapon (such as the ownership of a gun by a convicted felon) or owning a federally banned weapon could subject you to serious consequences, such as jail time, fines, and forfeiting the weapon.
