Examples of Gun Crimes in Massachusetts

Gun crimes refer mainly to charges for illegal gun ownership, possession and carrying. Gun crimes are different than violent crimes committed with guns. Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, for example, is a different type of charge than a gun crime. Gun crimes have to do with breaking the laws surrounding gun ownership:

  • Owning a gun without a firearm permit
  • Owning ammunition without a permit
  • Possessing a gun with a defaced serial number
  • Possessing a sawed-off shotgun
  • Possessing a high-capacity firearm
  • Possessing a stun gun or chemical mace

You can count on Attorney Chris Spring’s knowledge of gun laws in Massachusetts to break down the specific charge against you. As an experienced Woburn gun crimes attorney, Chris can answer your questions, explore options for case dismissal, strive to reduce your charges and fight aggressively for you at trial for the best possible case outcome.

Common Gun Crime Defenses

  • The gun was seized by the police during an unconstitutional search
