It seems like everyone in Minnesota hunts or knows somebody who hunts. It is perfectly legal to possess a rifle or a shotgun to hunt so long as you are approved by state and follow the proper channels. Same goes for a weapon like a handgun for protection or recreation. However, problems can occur if you’re not careful. For example, you can be charged with illegal weapon possession if:
- You fail to renew your permit to carry, but keep the weapon in your possession.
- You son takes your weapon out of the safe and brings it to a friend’s house to show off, and the parents call the police.
- You travel out of state with the weapon and break a law in the adjacent state.
Along a similar vein, if you bring a weapon with you during the commission of another crime, like breaking and entering or an assault, your charges will likely be upgraded to a felony. These charges carry the potential for serious jail time, so you’ll want to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. For more information on how Avery Appelman can work with you to help beat the charges and retain your right to possess a weapon, reach out to our firm today.
