Weapons charges range from possession of a firearm to assault with a deadly weapon. While some weapons charges are limited to the illegal possession or sale of a gun or other weapon, others involve the use of a weapon in the commission of a crime. These latter charges may add up to 20 years on any prison sentence you already face, such as the discharge of a firearm during the commission of a robbery.
