  • Carrying a concealed weapon without a permit: Illegally carrying a hidden firearm without appropriate licensing can be a felony charge.
  • Brandishing a firearm in public: Displaying a gun in a threatening manner or where it may cause alarm is usually a misdemeanor.
  • Possession of a firearm by a felon: Convicted felons found in possession of a gun are typically charged with a felony.
  • Improper discharge of a firearm: Discharging a firearm within city limits or in a manner that endangers life can be a misdemeanor or felony, depending on circumstances.

Penalties for Firearms Crimes

The penalties for these offenses vary, depending on the specific charge and your criminal history, if any. 

Potential consequences can include:

  • Jail time: Weapons offenses, particularly felonies, can result in significant jail sentences, ranging from months to years.
  • Fines: You could face hefty fines in addition to jail time.
  • Community service: You may be ordered to complete a certain number of community service hours instead of jail time, which is often part of probation.
  • Loss of concealed pistol license (CPL): A conviction for a weapons offense can revoke your CPL, making it difficult to legally own or carry a firearm in the future.
  • Difficulty obtaining employment: A criminal record for a weapons offense can make finding employment challenging, particularly in fields with security-sensitive positions.
