A Pillar of Defense in Colorado Springs

Gun crimes and the possible penalties in Colorado

In Colorado, the possible penalties for a gun crime can be severe. It's also fairly easy to violate gun and weapons laws here. However, there are many defenses that can be used to mitigate the penalties.

Here are some common gun and weapons charges in Colorado, as well as the possible penalties:

-- Possession of a dangerous weapon: This is a felony that carries up to three years in prison, a fine of up to $100,000 and two years of parole.

-- Possessing an illegal weapon: This is a misdemeanor that carries penalties of up to 18 months in jail and up to a $5,000 fine.

-- Defacing a firearm: This is a misdemeanor that carries the same penalties as possessing an illegal weapon.

-- Possession of a concealed weapon: This is a misdemeanor that carries up to 12 months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine.

-- Unlawful possession: This is a misdemeanor that carries the same penalties as possession of a concealed weapon.

If this is not the first time you have faced charges for a weapons crime and you are convicted, the penalties you face could be even more severe.
