There are various weapons offences including possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm, unsafe storage of a firearm, and carrying a concealed weapon. Many firearms offences carry minimum jail terms, even on a first offence. Common defences to firearms and other weapons offences involve moving for dismissal due to insufficient evidence of possession or attacking the validity of the search that located the weapon. The lawyers at Mickelson & Whysall have represented many offenders on various firearms offences, ranging from possession of a loaded prohibited firearm to simply possessing a concealed knife.
