The Consequences of a Conviction
If you are convicted of carrying a concealed firearm, even if the firearm is only partially concealed, you could face harsh penalties. This includes carrying a concealed firearm on your person or in your vehicle without a permit to do so.
The consequences of a conviction are many and varied, but they often include:
- Up to 1 year in county jail
- Anywhere from 16 months to 1 to 2 years in state prison
- Fines ranging from $1,000 to $10,000
- A lifetime ban on possessing any firearms
If there are aggravating circumstances, you may face harsher legal penalties. Such circumstances can include possession of a stolen firearm, prior felony convictions, illegal firearm possession, and carrying a firearm that is not licensed to you.
