Firearm Crimes Attorney in Lubbock

Relentless Firearm Crimes Lawyer

Most firearm crimes can be charged as a state or federal offense. Firearm or gun crimes can carry serious penalties including years in prison.

State firearm crimes include the following:

  • Unlawfully carrying a weapon
  • Possessing a weapon in a prohibited place
  • Possessing a firearm by a felon
  • Possessing a prohibited weapon

If the firearm was not manufactured in the state of Texas, the federal government can also prosecute firearm crimes.

The federal government prohibits the following people from possessing firearms:

  • Felons
  • Aliens
  • Drug users or addicts
  • Anyone under felony indictment
  • And many others

These federal weapon crimes are investigated by the (1) Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms; (2) the Drug Enforcement Administration; (3) the Federal Bureau of Investigations; as well as (4) local law enforcement.

Is it Illegal to Wear a Mask and Carry a Gun in Texas?

Texas law does not name wearing a mask and carrying a gun a criminal offense, even during normal circumstances, but many wondered if COVID-19 would bring additional restrictions. It has been deduced that if the mask is being worn to hide your identity and intimidate others or commit a crime, then it is illegal.
