New Hampshire Firearm Offense Attorneys

Gun Laws & Violations in New Hampshire

In 2017, New Hampshire repealed the state's concealed carry permit requirement. However, do not be mistaken by thinking that the firearm and weapons laws in the state are so lenient that you do not need to worry if you are accused of a firearms violation. If convicted, you can still suffer heavy penalties, including incarceration and the removal of your Second Amendment Right to keep and carry a firearm.

At Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., our New Hampshire gun crime attorneys believe in the importance of respecting and protecting your Second Amendment Rights. If you have been accused of a gun-related crime, then you should act immediately by calling (888) 801-9916.

We offer no-cost, confidential consultations to inquiring clients.

Different Types of Gun Crimes

New Hampshire is somewhat lenient with its gun crimes but still has many restrictions. Specifically, you can only carry and use a firearm in accordance with what the law allows. Failing to follow the law may result in a harsh gun crime charge and aggressive prosecution. There might even be public pressure to convict you, so it is vital to work with a legal team with the talent and experience to handle virtually any firearm offense case.

Different types of firearm offenses in New Hampshire include:

  • Carrying or owning a firearm that is strictly outlawed, even regarding private collections.
  • Carrying or owning a firearm against a temporary court order, such as most restraining orders, while a domestic violence investigation is pending.
  • Carrying or owning a firearm after being convicted of certain felony drug charges.
  • Using a firearm while committing any crime, especially those against a person.
  • Giving, selling, or loaning certain firearms to a minor and under certain conditions.
  • Storing a firearm in a place a minor can access and later uses.

Penalties for Gun Crime Convictions

The penalties you will face if convicted of a firearm offense in New Hampshire will vary greatly depending on the offense in question. Some offenses are misdemeanors, some are felonies, and there are even some that will only face administrative penalties without criminal charges. In any situation, you can depend on our team to argue against the opposition and steer your case to an optimal outcome.

If convicted of a gun crime in New Hampshire, you could face the following:

  • Jail or prison time
  • Heavy fines
  • Loss of Second Amendment Rights
  • Removal of child custody rights

Building Your Case from the Ground Up

Our New Hampshire gun crime attorneys treat each case individually. No one gets a pre-manufactured defense when our team is in charge. By personalizing your defense and keeping you fully informed throughout the case, we can better stand up to the opposition and defeat your charges.

Do not risk your gun rights by doing nothing to defend yourself. Contact us now.
