Weapons And Firearms Violations
Did you forget about the gun in your luggage when you went to the airport?
When traveling, it can be easy to forget about the firearm in your luggage when entering into a TSA checkpoint. And although the hectic nature of last-minute packing can easily lead to simple oversights like this, you could face hefty fines or even criminal penalties if a gun is found in your carry-on luggage at an airport security checkpoint.
There are numerous other situations and circumstances in Texas where carrying a gun is illegal. Being unaware of these situations, or forgetting about the exact circumstances in which you can and cannot carry a gun, can carry serious consequences.
In situations where a weapon is present due to a mere oversight, rather than criminal intent — such as when a firearm is placed accidentally in your carry-on bag — we work diligently to keep the grand jury from indicting you for a crime. Keeping the incident off your criminal history record is of paramount importance.
