We're Ready to Go the Extra Mile for You
While the state of Maryland does allow adults to acquire certain permits to carry firearms, there are also many restrictions on the weapons that you are forbidden from using or possessing. If you are facing charges for a weapon-related offense, look no further for your best chance at a favorable outcome.
At the Law Offices of Maria Mena, our Silver Spring weapons charge attorneys understand the penalties you are at risk for. Without a strong defense, you could face the consequences of a criminal conviction for years. We are prepared to counter your charges with a strong defense and consistently go the extra mile for our clients.
How Does the State Classify Weapon-Related Offenses?
There are several categories of weapons in Maryland. Long guns, like rifles and shotguns, do not require a permit to be openly carried. Firearms, however, can only be carried if they are concealed and the owner has a permit.
The following actions are all illegal according to state law:
- Carrying a concealed, dangerous weapon
- Openly carrying a dangerous weapon
- Carrying deadly weapons on school property
- Illegally carrying a handgun
Most of the above offenses are considered misdemeanors and will be punished as such. Penalties could include incarceration and fines, along with a ban from owning any future weapons.
