Kansas City Gun Laws for Felons

Illegal weapons possession can be tried as a single crime or in combination with other felonies, such as drug trafficking or armed robbery. In either case, if you are under investigation for a felony gun charge, you need to speak with an experienced lawyer. The Kansas City criminal defense attorneys at Rokusek Stein Law, LLC, have more than 30 years of combined experience. We are here to protect your rights, your freedom, and your future.

Talk to us if you are facing any of the following gun charges:

  • Felon in possession of a firearm
  • Knowingly purchasing a firearm for a felon
  • Possession of an illegal concealed weapon
  • Possession of a weapon in conjunction with drug trafficking or drug use

What Happens if I'm Convicted?

Those convicted of possessing, brandishing, or discharging a gun in the course of drug trafficking or the commission of a violent crime face a minimum of five years in a federal penitentiary. Each subsequent conviction increases the mandatory minimum by 25 years.

Mandatory minimums can be enforced even if the gun was properly registered and was not used during the commission of the crime.

Put a Former State & Federal Prosecutor to Work for You

Attorney Jackie Rokusek is a former state and federal prosecutor who served as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney focusing on gun and drug charges. Working directly with federal agencies such as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and the FBI, she gained invaluable insight into the prosecution of felony gun possession charges.

Today, that experience has translated into a top ten ranking from the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys (NACDA) and a Avvo Rating of 10.0 Superb. If there is any defense to be made, Rokusek Stein Law, LLC, will find it. We never encourage a client to accept a plea deal unless there is no opportunity for dismissal.
