If you have been arrested for or charged with a weapons violation, you could be facing serious penalties if you are convicted, especially if you have a prior criminal record. Illinois’ gun laws are stricter than the gun laws in many other states.

In addition, Illinois gun laws are strictly enforced and prosecuted. If you are convicted of the unlawful possession, use, or discharge of a gun or weapon, you can face a mandatory prison sentence. If you used a gun or weapon while committing another crime such as car theft or burglary, you face increased penalties if convicted.
