Profound Consequences Of A Gun-Related Conviction

There are mandatory minimum sentences for those convicted of weapons offences. Other consequences may include a lifelong prohibition against owning firearms. These repercussions are especially damaging for hunters or anyone whose job requires them to carry a firearm.

Weapons offences can result in the disruption of your family. Bail restrictions typically include the exclusion of the defendants from their homes and family. The charging of weapons offences typically results in the seizure of all hunting or other firearms and the suspension and/or revocation of all firearms licences and firearms registration certificates.
