Federal Firearms Charges
A possession or receipt of a firearm or ammunition charge requires that the government prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused possessed or was in receipt of the firearm or ammunition, that the accused was prohibited from possessing or receiving a firearm or ammunition, and that the firearm or ammunition traveled across a Stateline or came from a foreign country at any time.
When a drug trafficking crime or federal crime of violence involves firearms, it is common for a person accused to also be charged with using or carrying a firearm during or in relation to, or possess a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime or federal crime of violence. Depending on the firearm involved, the mandatory minimum sentence will increase.
