New York’s Weapons Possession Laws
One of the most common reasons people are charged with illegal weapon possession is because they are unaware about what possession of a gun actually means. For example, having a gun at home or in your car still counts as constructive possession, even if it is not directly on your person. Additionally, if one person has a gun and there are five other people in the car, all six can be charged with presumptive possession. To fight against these complex charges, you will need a lawyer who thoroughly understands the complications of possession and usage in New York.
