Illinois Gun & Weapons Attorneys
Under Illinois law, in order to own a gun, you must first obtain a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card also know as a FOID card. If you are moving or transporting your firearm, you are required to have that card in your possession. In addition to having the FOID card on your person, you are also required to transport that gun in an unloaded capacity, and in an enclosed case.
Failing to follow the Illinois gun laws can lead to misdemeanor FOID card criminal charges or to even more serious felony charges for unlawful possession of a weapon.
If you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor offense for gun possession or for failing to have your FOID card in your possession, contact one of our experienced attorneys for help. Don’t risk your gun privileges, gun charges are serious and can lead to the revocation of your FOID card and even jail. We will help you look at the details of your case to see whether the police had the right to stop and search you or your vehicle. If your rights were violated with an illegal search and seizure, we can work to suppress this evidence.
