Prohibited Weapons in Texas
Texas has some of the most liberal gun laws in the country. However, this does not mean that there are not weapons-related restrictions in the state, and ignorance or negligence regarding laws and restrictions pertaining to weapons may result in arrest and imprisonment. In the state of Texas, a concealed handgun license is not a license to carry any weapon, as many weapons are prohibited under state law.
If you have been charged with possession of an illegal weapon, you will need the counsel of an experienced attorney. A conviction could have potentially devastating personal and professional consequences, so it is important to do everything you can to fight these serious charges. For information regarding your legal options, contact the Denton criminal defense attorney of Alexander & Associates at 972-420-6560 today.
