Weapons Charges in Long Beach

About Weapons Crimes in California

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." In practice, this right has been regularly and repeatedly infringed, to the point where many people in the general public are under the impression that gun ownership is a licensed privilege, much like driving. California has some of the most restrictive firearms laws in the United States. For example, in the beginning of 2012 it became illegal to carry even an unloaded firearm in public. Concealed carry is legal, but only with a license that can be difficult to obtain, assault weapons are banned, and there are numerous additional laws concerning the possession, use and sale of firearms and other weapons.

People from all walks of life are arrested on weapons charges, from men and women engaged in hunting to gang members and even ordinary middle class residents of Long Beach.
