Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do Michigan weapons laws work?
    The statutes establish different offenses for who can possess a firearm, where someone can carry a gun, prohibitions on certain types of guns, and transfers of firearms. Weapons laws are organized into misdemeanor and felony charges depending on the severity of the crime.
  • What factors are considered when determining whether a person is prohibited from possessing a firearm in Michigan?
    In Michigan, several factors are taken into consideration when determining if a person is prohibited from possessing a firearm. These factors include, but are not limited to: Criminal Convictions: Individuals convicted of certain offenses, such as felonies, domestic violence, or drug-related crimes, are generally prohibited from possessing firearms. Mental Health History: People who have been involuntarily committed to a mental health facility or deemed mentally ill by a court may be restricted from firearm possession. Restraining Orders: Individuals subject to certain types of restraining orders, such as those related to domestic violence, may be prohibited from possessing firearms during the duration of the order. Age Restrictions: Michigan law sets minimum age requirements for firearm possession, and individuals below the specified age limit may be restricted from owning firearms. Immigration Status: Non-U.S. citizens, including certain visa holders and undocumented immigrants, may face limitations on firearm possession. Controlled Substance Use: Individuals who are habitual users of controlled substances or have been convicted of drug-related offenses may be prohibited from possessing firearms. It's important to note that the interpretation of these factors can be complex, and the specifics of each case may vary. If you have questions about your eligibility to possess firearms in Michigan, it's crucial to consult with an experienced Kalamazoo weapons offenses attorney who can provide personalized guidance based on your unique circumstances.
  • What penalties do I face for a conviction?
    Misdemeanor weapons charges are punishable by up to 93 days or a year in jail, plus a fine. For felonies, the prison terms increase significantly. Illegally concealed carry or possession by a person who is prohibited could mean up to five years in prison.
  • Are there other implications for weapons crimes?
    For any criminal conviction, the case will remain on your criminal record and show up on a background check. You could have problems with employment and finances. Plus, a violation of weapons laws will affect your Second Amendment rights.
  • Can I get the charges dismissed?
    Police can get too aggressive in investigating crimes, sometimes violating your constitutional protections against unlawful search and seizure. If a weapon was turned up through illegal conduct, it is tossed as evidence. The prosecution’s case suffers.
  • What should I do if I was arrested?
    Your first task is to never attempt to resist arrest. You should also remain silent, and do not offer statements or answer police questions. Then, exercise your right to counsel by contacting a Kalamazoo weapons offenses attorney right away.
