The Right to Bear Arms
The U.S. Constitution gives you the right to bear arms; however, sometimes this right is in danger of being stripped from you. Florida residents have had their weapons confiscated from them for a variety of reasons, such as when transporting their firearm. Florida law allows residents to carry a firearm securely encased in their vehicle for transport, however, many times police officers misinterpret the law and charge the individual with a gun crime. As a law-abiding citizen, you are granted the right to possess a legal firearm, and I am dedicated to protecting your right.
Common gun charges in Florida include:
Improper exhibition of firearm
Carrying a concealed gun without a license
Discharging or possessing a firearm in a school
Giving a minor (16 and younger) access to a firearm
Gun possession as a convicted felon
Florida Statute 775.087, also known as the 10-20-Life Law, is a sentencing law for gun crimes. Simplified, it states that if you pull out a gun under certain circumstances you are given a minimum jail sentence of 10 years. If you fire a weapon, you are given a 20-year jail sentence. And, if you fire your weapon at somebody, you can be given a jail sentence of 25 years to life. Due to the severe jail sentences associated with gun crimes in Jacksonville, it is highly recommended that you seek legal services immediately.
