Gun Crimes

Fort Collins Gun Crimes Lawyer

Tough Defense Against Gun Crime Charges

At Leah Bishop, L.L.C., we have experience with criminal charges involving gun crimes. Leah Bishop spent nearly nine years as a deputy district attorney, where she learned the law and process of gun crime cases from the other side. She is an aggressive criminal defense litigator who thrives on the fast-paced, quick-thinking environment of a courtroom. She also provides our clients with valued counsel to help them make the best decisions in their cases.

If you have been charged with a crime involving a gun, make sure you get a Fort Collins gun crimes attorney who can help you minimize the damage of a conviction on your life. If you get us on the case early enough, we can sometimes work with the prosecuting attorney and the arresting officer to get the charges dropped or dismissed before they are even issued. We can also get the charges or sentences reduced by working with the prosecuting attorney at or before the trial. If the case goes to trial, we are equipped to provide you with valuable counsel and defend you against gun rime charges throughout your case.

Types of Gun Crimes

Concealing a handgun so that no one else can see it generally requires a permit in Colorado, but it is legal to own and carry a handgun for protection in your home or car. This means that you can drive with a gun in your car if you are traveling. You can also carry one in the house for the same purpose.

We are equipped to handle a wide range of gun crime cases, including:

  • Possession by previous offender: If you have been convicted of a felony and certain violent misdemeanors, it is illegal for you to possess any kind of firearm.
  • Carrying a concealed weapon unlawfully without a permit: Although it is legal to carry and conceal a handgun, you need proper authorization to do so.
  • Prohibited use of weapons: Usually this crime amounts to someone behaving poorly with a gun, firing the gun in a prohibited area without good cause or carrying a gun while intoxicated.
  • Gun crimes on a college campus: We see a fair share of gun crimes occurring on college campuses, where a college party gets out of hand and someone fires a gun.

The technical crimes and potential penalties are different for most of these and other gun crimes.  Leah Bishop, L.L.C. can defend you from these charges and walk you through the complicated criminal justice process.
