Gun Charges and Restricted Persons

Gun Charge Defense in the Boise, Idaho, Area

A conviction for a weapons offense can carry serious consequences, including incarceration of up to five years. That is why it is critical that you work with an experienced defense attorney — someone who has what it takes to effectively protect your rights.

I am defense lawyer Gerald Bublitz and my Boise, Idaho, law firm serves people facing criminal charges in Idaho state courts. I know the Idaho criminal code and my experience helps me successfully defend you against gun charges. I represent people facing firearms charges, including possession of concealed weapons without a permit and possession of guns by restricted persons.

Restricted Persons

Idaho law prohibits certain people from carrying guns in certain situations:

  • Carrying a concealed weapon while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Possessing weapons or firearms on school property
  • Possessing a firearm if you have been formally charged with or found guilty of a felony (a crime punishable by more than a year in prison)
  • Possessing a firearm if you have been dishonorably discharged from the military

At Bublitz Law, P.C., I represent people who have been accused of carrying guns in these situations and others. I offer a vigorous defense and a defense strategy that uses all the legal angles available — focusing on what matters most to you.

I also represent people who are accused of supplying firearms to a criminal gang under the Idaho Criminal Gang Enforcement Act. People convicted of a violation of the Act can face imprisonment for up to 10 years and may be find up to $50,000 as well.

Gun charges come with severe penalties. If someone you care about has been arrested, it is critical to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney who is dedicated to protecting their rights. Contact Bublitz Law, P.C. by calling 208-344-5500 or by completing my online contact form.
