Possible Weapons Violations & Charges
Missouri has an extensive list of weapons charges based on how someone uses, possesses, or controls a firearm. Many violations will be categorized as a high level misdemeanor if the defendant has no previous weapons violation convictions. Although, there are serious weapons crimes that constitute a high level felony for first time charges.
Examples of weapons charges in Missouri include:
- Altering or removing identifying marks on a firearm.
- Carrying a concealed deadly weapon without proper permits.
