Understanding Virginia's Weapon Laws

Depending on the circumstances of your case, and whether or not you hold a criminal record, the penalties and charges can be extremely severe. Weapons are considered any device that fires a bullet or missile, including pistols and revolvers. Knives, razors, metal knuckles, and machetes may also be considered a weapon and carrying any of these can result in charges.

Some of the most common weapon crimes include:

  • Concealed weapon without a permit: Class I misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and up to $2,500 in fines.
  • Firing a weapon in or towards an occupied building without injury: Class 1 misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and up to $2,500 in fines.
  • Using a firearm in commission of felony: Felony offense punishable by a mandatory sentence of up to 3 years in jail for a first time offense.
  • Convicted felon possessing a firearm: Felony punishable by mandatory minimum sentencing.
