The defenses to a gun case in Massachusetts are varied. You need a lawyer to help present these defenses.
If you do not win your gun case, Massachusetts gun charges carry serious penalties. Even a first-time gun charge carries a mandatory minimum of 18 months in the House of Correction. This must be served day-for-day.
First, you could argue that the gun was illegally seized. Your attorney would need to file a motion to suppress to argue this. Typically, a judge would decide whether you were illegally searched after a hearing.
Second, your attorney could argue that the firearm was not a gun according to Massachusetts law. This means that the firearm does not work properly or is otherwise not a real firearm.
Third, a firearms attorney could make the argument that you did not possess the firearm. You could be charged through constructive possession, which is a complicated area of law. This is another way you could win your gun case.
Gun charges in Massachusetts carry strict penalties. They can carry mandatory jail time, pretrial detention through dangerousness, and immigration consequences. Without an attorney, it becomes much tougher to win your gun case in Massachusetts.
