All over the country there are many discussions being had about guns, gun rights and what people should do about them. Those conversations are distracting noise to the situation people face every day in relations to those with federal and local firearms charges.

Our system is dependent on innocent until proven guilty, and I defend your innocence and your freedom with every tool at my disposal.
What Is Different About Gun Crime?
Firearms crimes, in general, focus on the various ways that each state defines its laws on guns. Since gun ownership is a right, many state laws allow for wide possession of firearms.
In Mississippi, gun crimes can be:
- Possession on school property: People cannot carry guns on school ground, under almost all circumstances.
- Unlawful possession: People convicted of crimes, children, chronically intoxicated people and people with mental issues may not own guns.
- Possession of banned guns: Automatic weapons, bombs and armor-piercing ammunition are all banned in the state.
Also, because other states have restrictive laws, some people come to Mississippi to purchase weapons for family members in other states. This can be considered a federal crime.
