We are Gun Crime Lawyers in Delaware. In America, many of our citizens value their rights granted by the Second Amendment of the Constitution allowing them to keep and bear arms. We receive these rights by birth, but they can easily be taken away from us for a number of reasons.
In the United States, one-third of citizenship admits owning one or more guns. There are roughly three hundred million guns in this country, enough for every man, woman, and child. Many guns are owned by law-abiding citizens, but there are some guns, whose owners have lost their rights to possess them because of being convicted of a crime or having an unstable mental condition. Some citizens might be unaware of losing their rights and may end up in trouble with law enforcement and the court system.
Here is a list of common gun laws that you may find yourself facing. Rest assured that the Lawyers at Schwartz and Schwartz are experienced and capable of dealing with these gun-related laws and issues.
