Utah Gun Crimes Attorney
Defending Against Gun Crimes Across the Wasatch Front
Utah is one of the best states to live in terms of keeping and bearing arms. Many states like California and New York have extremely strict prohibitions on the use, carrying, and owning of firearms.
In spite of Utah’s liberal gun laws, there are still many instances in which the carrying of a firearm can result in jail time. For example, the mere carrying of a dangerous weapon such as a gun while you are intoxicated is a misdemeanor. In fact, if you are doing any illegal drugs, such as smoking marijuana in your house, and there is a firearm in your home, your drug charge can be changed from a misdemeanor count to a felony charge just because of the presence of a firearm.
You can also be cited with an infraction just for carrying a firearm into a house of worship. It does not matter if you have a concealed weapons license.
Shooting a gun under certain circumstances can also result in a felony charge. There are other laws dealing with the sale and buying of guns as well as the prohibited possession of certain weapons by certain individuals including minors and convicted felons. Simply put Utah’s gun laws can be complex and long and you need a knowledgeable attorney who can help you make sense of the different consequences of your charges.
