Defense Against Federal Weapons Charges
Federal weapons charges can involve anything from possession to use or distribution/sale of firearms or other deadly weapons. Possession of illegal guns, gun trafficking and arms trafficking are extremely serious charges that can be made worse if you already have a felony conviction.
Federal gun crimes will almost always be charged as felonies that can carry serious penalties beyond imprisonment. Those convicted of such charges can find it difficult to secure future employment, housing or financial assistance. As an experienced criminal defense attorney, John Hunter Smith understands the idiosyncrasies of weapons law and knows how these laws apply to your particular case for the most successful defense.
