Gun and weapons laws are complicated, and it’s easy to make a mistake when purchasing a firearm. For example, you might have a good friend who promises you that the gun he’s selling is legitimate and legal. Nevertheless, you later find out the hard way that you’re in possession of an illegal firearm.
The illegal gun trade is massive throughout the United States and New York and federal authorities are diligent about enforcing gun laws – especially right now. In fact, at the end of February, the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office reported that the New York City Firearms Investigation Unite carried out the largest “gun bust” in the history of Brooklyn.
