Airport Firearms Arrests
We handle the defense of all types of firearms charges at JFK and LaGuardia airports, both located in Queens County near our office. We have protected the rights of a broad range of citizens who followed the rules, but were arrested anyway, from entertainment celebrities and college professors to lawyers. Our goal in airport firearms prosecutions is always acquittal or the reduction of charges when acquittal is unrealistic. We seek to avoid fines and jail time, as well as the creation of a permanent criminal record.
In our experience, most airport gun prosecutions are an abuse of governmental power. We have seen countless situations where a law abiding citizen from another state with more permissive firearms laws sought to travel to New York with a lawfully owned and possessed gun. In many situations, the individual contacted the airline for advice and followed all the rules regarding how to pack the gun and who to notify. However, when attempting to leave New York with the firearm, the person is arrested, charged with a firearms violation, and taken for arraignment in the Queens Criminal Court.
At The Law Office of Martin D. Kane, we won't let you be wrongfully punished for trying to do the right thing. We will aggressively defend you on all airport firearms charges.
