Firearm Possession

Firearm charges in Massachusetts often carry mandatory minimum sentences and are therefore extremely serious. Attorney Tripp has successfully defended numerous clients charged with unlawful possession of a firearm in the District and Superior Court.

The unlawful possession of a firearm in Massachusetts is an exceptionally serious offense. Illegal weapons crimes are governed by Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 269, section 10. While protecting the Constitution’s right to bear arms, the law prohibits the knowing possession of a firearm, whether loaded or unloaded, outside of an individual’s residence or place of business, or without a valid license to carry a firearm, or without having any specific permits required for the particular firearm in question. The statute defines possession as either having the firearm on one’s person or in one’s car.
