Criminal Defence Services for Firearms and Weapons Offences
The Criminal Code and Firearms Act governs charges that relate to firearms and weapons offences. These types of charges should not be taken lightly as the Crown pursues them as vigorously as possible. Neither the public nor the press like it too much when innocent bystanders or police officers are injured or killed or threatened by those who shouldn’t have had firearms in the first place.
