The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution ensures the right of U.S. citizens to keep and bear arms. However, it’s left up to individual states to decide their own gun control laws. Weapons charges in Illinois can carry a significant prison sentence and lifetime consequences if you’re convicted. Because of their violent nature, weapons charges are aggressively prosecuted – and even more so if the accused used a gun to commit another crime such as robbery. Adding gun charges to another violent crime can add mandatory minimum jail time to the other penalties you might already be facing.
