Do you own a weapon? Do you have every right to own that weapon? Sometimes, people in the Royal Oak area who own weapons are unlawfully charged with weapons possession even though they have all the necessary permits to have them. In another cases, people who are charged with weapons offenses might not even be aware that they are breaking any laws. People own or have possession of weapons for many different reasons, but whatever the reason, just because they have a weapon, that does not mean they are guilty of a crime.
