During the holidays many people go out and try to purchase a gun, but whether its for protection or for fun, most people do not know the ramifications of the Application for the license to carry a Firearm. Most people in filling the application do not think about situations that occurred when they were kids or juveniles. In fact, most people may forget what happened. In some situations, the fact that an individual was admitted to the hospital because he had some mental issues, may also prevent them from obtaining a gun. The most important thing for people to know is that if someone misrepresent(which includes forgetting) anything on the application, they may be charged criminally and face a felony charge and jail time. BEFORE filling out the application, you should contact an experienced attorney to help you.   Giribaldi & Manaras is available to help, feel free to contact our office at 610-891-8303.
