What Constitutes Weapon Charges in NYC?
Weapon Charges in New York City
Law enforcement, particularly in New York City, are aggressively searching
out illegal weapon possessions and aggressively prosecuting. The second
amendment to our country's constitution states: the right of the people
to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. In the course of trying
to protect people, law enforcement can sometimes violate the constitutional
rights of another.
If this has happened in your case, skilled
criminal defense legal counsel can take hard-hitting action to move that any charges against
you be dropped immediately. There are local, state and federal laws that
place restrictions on the possession, use, sales or trafficking, manufacturing,
and importing or exporting of deadly weapons.
Penalties for convictions of any of these crimes can be quite harsh. If
you are facing any type of weapon charges in the New York City area, a
NYC criminal attorney from H. Benjamin Perez & Associates, P.C. can

The state of New York may considers these items as weapons:
- Dart Guns
- Stun Guns
