What are Illegal Firearms?
Whether or not your firearm is illegal will depend upon your state gun laws. Typically, most illegal firearms include possessing a weapon when you are a felon, a stolen handgun, automatic weapons, sawed-off shotguns that are less than 18 inches as required by Federal law, or unregistered guns. If you have been arrested for possession or use of an illegal firearm, you should consult with a criminal defense attorney to obtain legal advice.
