Illegally Discharging a Firearm

Some of the most serious weapon charges are related to illegally discharging a firearm. As a gun owner, you are responsible for the safe operation of your weapon. That includes not firing it in public areas. Depending on where you have illegally discharged your weapon, you can be facing criminal charges that result in jail time.

Charges for Illegally Carrying a Concealed Weapon

In Texas, if you do not have a Concealed Handgun License (CHL), it is illegal to carry a handgun on your person. Of course, you may carry a pistol while on your premises or other property you own (such as a motor vehicle or watercraft).

Carrying a handgun without a or CHL is considered a Class A Misdemeanor. This is punishable by up to one-year in jail and up to a $4,000 fine. If you knowingly carry a handgun on any premises permitted to sell alcoholic beverages, the offense becomes a Third Degree Felony. This is punishable with 2 to 10 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines. You will need a criminal defense attorney if you are arrested or charged with Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon.
