Naperville Gun Charges Defense Lawyers
Illinois Criminal Defense for Weapon Charges
Most people are not aware of the strict gun control laws that Illinois has for carrying an unconcealed weapon in their car. Even though a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card would allow a person to carry a gun, Illinois's gun laws mandate that the weapon must be unloaded and concealed in a firearm carrying case. Anyone who fails to follow these statutes, written under the Unlawful Use of Weapons (UUW) in the Criminal Code, faces Class 4 Felony charges.
