What Does "Weapons Crime" Refer To?

Weapons crimes can refer to the illegal possession of a firearm or the use of a firearm during other criminal acts such as an assault.

In Georgia, people convicted of a felony or those in hospitals due to mental health issues or substance abuse are not allowed to carry firearms. You could be charged with illegal possession if you meet any of these criteria and are found carrying a gun.

When weapons are involved in an assault or battery charge, the penalties become more severe, as the accused can face consequences for both the initial charge and for a weapons crime.
