Understanding Firearms Offences

Firearms offences encompass a range of illegal activities under the Firearms Act 1968 and subsequent legislation. Some common firearms offences include:

  • Illegal possession of a firearm
  • Possession of an imitation firearm
  • Possession of a firearm by persons previously convicted of a crime
  • Criminal use of a firearm
  • Illegal importation or dealing of firearms
  • Illegal conversion of weapons
  • Possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear or violence

Firearms legislation is complex, and mistakes about the legal status of firearms can easily occur, leading to harsh penalties.

Penalties for Firearms Offences

Penalties for firearms offences vary depending on the nature of the offence and the specific circumstances. Some offences carry minimum custodial sentences, and prosecutors may only need to prove illegal possession, not knowledge of the firearm.

If found guilty, penalties can include lengthy prison sentences, fines, and other punitive measures.
