Long Island Firearm Possession Lawyer

Long Island, New York Gun Laws

Picture of a Pistol

In New York, an individual needs to obtain a permit to own certain types of guns. Out-of-state permits are not valid, and a separate permit is needed to transport a gun into New York City. An individual who carries a gun without a permit can be charged with illegal firearm possession. They can also be charged if they have a permit but take their gun to a place where firearms are prohibited, such as school grounds.

New York has some of the strictest gun laws, and if an individual is convicted of illegally possessing a firearm they face harsh penalties. If you have been charged, it is imperative to contact a skilled lawyer immediately. At The Law Offices of Scott Gross, P.C., we have over 13 years of experience providing top-quality legal advocacy to individuals facing criminal charges. We are well-versed in New York gun laws and can guide you through the legal process for this offense.

Penalties for Illegally Possessing a Firearm

Most firearm possession charges are felonies punishable by at least 1 year in prison and steep fines. Penalties increase if the individual has a previous criminal history or used the gun in the commission of another crime.
