Weapon Offenses

The Right to Bear Arms is a zealously protected constitutional right of all Iowans.  Whether for personal protection, hunting or recreation, all Iowan's have the right to posses weapons.  There are however, legal limitations.  These legal limitations pertain to individuals convicted of certain criminal offenses, types of weapons and limitations on where and under what conditions those weapons may be possessed.  Importantly, criminal accusations involving use or possession of weapons often times carry with them important consequences for the accused's ability to obtain and possess weapons in the future.  This can be a complicated area of the law that requires an in-depth understanding of the various implications and consequences that follow these types of accusations.
