Illegal Possession or Use of a Spring Action & Air Fired Handgun or Rifle

In New Jersey, a BB gun, pellet gun or airgun is defined as a “firearm” that falls under N.J.S.A. 2C:39-5. The result is that it is illegal to possess a handgun, rifle or shotgun of this nature except in accordance with the licensing, use and transport laws for firearms. B-B and pellet pistols are subject to all of the above mentioned laws affecting air guns plus statewide carry restrictions. These regulations are especially strict as it relates to permits to carry handguns and pistols under N.J.S.A. 2C:58-4. Those who deviate from these regulations are exposed to a felony criminal offense in most instances. For example, carrying an air or spring handgun without a valid permit is a third degree crime exposing the accused to up to 5 years in prison and a fine of as much as $15,000.

Most people fail to appreciate the severity of an air fired or spring loaded firearm offense (i.e. possession of a pellet gun). It may seem hard to comprehend but the New Jersey gun laws are drafted in such a way as to expose you to serious consequences if you possess a BB, Airsoft or Pellet firearm contrary to these rules. Hiring a knowledgeable attorney is crucial to avoiding jail and other penalties for a violation of these laws.

What Clients Say About Our Ocean County Criminal Defense Attorneys
Exemplary attorneys. I hired them for a DUI and an expungement. I was happy with the results for both cases. Special thank you to Samera for always answering all of my calls and questions JC
I'm 45 years old and this was my first time ever getting in trouble with the law. I was in need of a lawyer and after careful research, I called John F. Marshall Attorneys and was introduced to Abe Basch. Abe was professional, supportive and very thorough. I had three charges against me, one civil and two criminal. I was so scared and expressed that to Abe. The first day I had to go to court, I was an absolute nervous wreck but Abe prepped me and kept my anxiety levels down by going over the process of the courts thoroughly with me. He fought to get my charges dismissed and won all three cases (two court appearances). Abe is positive, confident and he ensured I felt the same way. I'd like to say thank you to Abe for working so diligently on my cases to get them dismissed. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest! I highly recommend Abe for any charges you may be faced with. Rose C.
