Plano Weapons Crimes Attorney
The Second Amendment gives individuals in Texas and throughout the U.S. the right to keep and bear arms. While the legislature has power to regulate who can have weapons such as guns, and what types, individuals in Texas are given the right to bear arms in lawful defense. People who are faced with criminal charges involving weapons and firearms risk losing the right to carry a weapon for the rest of their life. Attorney Jeffrey Grass has more than 20 years of experience in the area of criminal defense and will aggressively protect your interests if you are facing a weapons offense.
