Our Denver gun rights lawyer has nearly 20 years of experience and extensive knowledge of gun rights and Colorado gun laws.

If you have been charged with a weapons offense, call (303) 569-8410 for a free case evaluation.

Gun Charges in Colorado

While gun ownership is a protected right, there are situations in which an individual may be prohibited from carrying a firearm. In addition, failing to abide by Colorado’s gun laws could result in felony or misdemeanor charges, depending on the situation.

We represent clients facing firearms charges, such as:

  • Unlawful purchase of a firearm – Individuals purchasing a firearm illegally or for a person who is prohibited from owing a firearm, such as a convicted felon, could be facing a felony charge.

  • Illegal discharge of a firearm – Knowingly discharging a firearm into a dwelling or occupied building may result in felony charges.

  • Prohibited use of a firearm – This charge is for incidents such as recklessly firing a gun or using a gun while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

  • Unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon – If you do not have a concealed handgun permit or carry a gun where firearms are prohibited, such as a government building, you could be charged with unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon.

  • Defacing a firearm – Removing or altering a serial number is prohibited by state and federal law.

  • Possession of a weapon by a previous offender – Convicted felons are prohibited from possessing a firearm.

If you are accused of a gun crime, your freedom and right to own or possess a firearm could be in jeopardy. Don’t leave your future to chance. When you need experienced legal representation, our Denver gun rights attorney is available to take cases 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Gun Law Violations Carry Severe Penalties

In Colorado, gun crimes can be misdemeanors or felonies. A weapons violation can have lasting consequences on your life and limit your right to own a firearm in the future. The specific penalties you may be facing depend on the charge and whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony.

The penalty for weapons violations in Colorado include:

  • Possession of an illegal weapon – A Class 1 misdemeanor with a penalty of six to 18 months incarceration and up to a $5,000 fine

  • Unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon – A Class 2 misdemeanor with penalties that include up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine

  • Possession of a defaced firearm – A Class 1 misdemeanor

  • Unlawful purchase of a firearm – A Class 4 felony that is punishable by up to six years in prison and fines of up to $500,000

  • Possession of a weapon by a previous offender – This Class 6 felony charge can result in up to 18 months of incarceration and a fine of up to $100,000
