Defending Gun and Weapons Charges in Northwest Indiana
The United States Constitution gives you the right to bear arms. The fourth amendment clearly states: “….. A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” However, the right to bear arms does not mean you have unlimited freedom. It is important that you are familiar with and understand Indiana state laws when it comes to gun laws. When you are well informed then you are less likely to be charged with a gun violation.
