Weapons Crimes

The key in a weapons case is often the legality (or illegality) of the search that led to the weapon’s discovery.

We’re Defense Lawyers 
for Weapons Crimes

Mere possession of a weapon, without more, is not a crime in the State of Arkansas. Concealed and unconcealed carry are permitted without a license. Simply put, the Second Amendment is alive and well in the State of Arkansas.

Our attorneys have been at the forefront of the right to carry a weapon in the Natural State. Michael Kiel Kaiser achieved an appellate victory in Jamie Taff v. State of Arkansas, 2018 Ark. App. 488, which both houses of the Arkansas General Assembly resolved “gave judicial clarity and affirmed that Arkansas is a constitutional carry state, with no permit required to carry a handgun, either unconcealed or concealed.” Ms. Cassinelli has extensive experience dealing with federal weapons charges, and has even achieved an appellate victory regarding the possession of a machine gun.

If you are charged with illegally carrying or possessing a firearm, call our attorneys today. Frequently, the key in a weapons case is the legality (or not) of the search that led to the weapon’s discovery. Our attorneys have extensive experience arguing suppression issues in both state and federal courts, and have achieved appellate reversals based on these issues numerous times.
