Guns have been a major topic of discussion lately. While some lawmakers focus on what they consider the underlying causes of firearms crimes, other legislators focus on regulating the weapons themselves. While agreement may be sparse these days, it appears that the U.S House of Representatives has outlined a plan to increase the penalties for those convicted of federal firearms offenses.
Federal firearms charges should always be taken very seriously. Federal firearms offenses encompass a broad range of criminal activity including the possession of a gun that is not registered to trafficking. According to one recent report, a 29-year-old California man is currently experiencing just how serious federal prosecutors take weapons crimes.
