The Second Amendment guarantees citizens the Right to Bear Arms. However, the State of Missouri and the United States have enacted laws that place restrictions on when and how citizens can use a firearm and even carry or possess a firearm. For example, Missouri prohibits the unlawful possession of a firearm for those who have felony convictions and prohibits the unlawful use of a weapon if it is displayed or used in various manners. These charges can be misdemeanor or felony weapons charges. In fact, certain unlawful use of a weapon charges require prison time.
Missouri’s weapons charge laws are complex, and they can be treated differently in each county. For example, individuals may be treated differently in St. Louis County than in Jefferson County for a weapons charge offense.
