Potential Gun Charges

There are several laws regulating where guns are permitted and who can own them. If you bring a firearm into a place where it is prohibited by law, you could be charged with a gun-related offense. Also, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit is against the law.

Certain individuals are prohibited from owning or possessing a gun in the state of Georgia, including:

  • Convicted felons
  • Individuals convicted of domestic violence
  • Individuals who have been committed to a mental health institution,
  • Fugitives
  • Individuals who have been dishonorably discharged from the military
  • Illegal aliens

The penalties for a gun conviction depend on the type of offense committed and your previous criminal record. Convicted felons caught with a firearm could face an additional felony offense, resulting in significant prison time. Other potential penalties for a gun charge could include fines and probation.
