Weapon License Violations


Weapon licenses, specifically for firearms in the state of Texas, can be quite lenient at a glance, but they do have severe penalties for those who violate state statutes. Licenses are required for those who choose to conceal and carry, but larger guns, like shotguns and rifles, have much less regulation. A common charge is carrying a gun in plain sight or “open carrying.”

This charge can lead to expensive fines and should be dealt with immediately by an attorney who is well versed in defending gun charges in Texas. A knowledgeable criminal lawyer from Jim Medley & Associates P.C. can provide you with guidance and counsel concerning your gun license violation. Weapons violations are generally focused around firearms, and state law can lead to confusion by civilians of their rights and duties.

Conceal and carry permits are strictly enforced, and you may not carry a weapon in plain sight unless hunting or on your own property. Attorney Jim Medley is familiar with all such legal issues, as he was police officer for 12 years and has been in criminal justice for the past 20 years. He has dedicated his law career to practicing only criminal defense. It is important that all the facts are established and analyzed to determine how to defend against a criminal accusation related to your gun permit.
