Airport Gun Cases

Arrested for Carrying a gun in the Airport?

New York gun laws are some of the strictest in the United States. While most states are required to issue concealed carry pistol licenses to their citizens, many places in New York make it is almost impossible to get a license to carry a gun. While most states recognize pistol licenses from other states, New York does not.

Since New York is a hot spot for business and vacation travelers from all over our country, it is not surprising that many visitors from other states get arrested and charged with violating state gun laws because of shear ignorance. With so many busy airports in New York, it is not surprising that so many people get arrested.

Please give us a call if you were arrested at any of the following airports:

  • LaGuardia Airport
  • Kennedy Airport
  • Westchester Airport
  • Stewart International Airport
  • Newark Airport (New Jersey)
Why Our Firm Should be Your First Call

In a typical case, a traveler from a place where guns are more common legally checks their gun in and travels to New York. They stay for several days and then repeat the process of checking the gun in at a New York airport. This time, they are detained and arrested—typically facing a mandatory minimum of 3 ½ years in prison.
