Examples of Bergen County Weapons Charges

Bergen County gun charges can include crimes such as possession of a weapon or possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. Possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose is different than unlawful possession of a weapon. In order to be convicted of unlawful possession of a weapon or more specifically unlawful possession of a handgun, an individual must have possessed a handgun without first obtaining a New Jersey permit to carry a firearm. It is the lack of the permit to carry the firearm that actually makes the possession of the weapon illegal. This is different than possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. In order to be guilty of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, an individual must not only possess a weapon but they must do so for an unlawful purpose. This means that an individual can possess a gun either legally or illegally but not necessarily be guilty of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. Additionally, an individual can be guilty of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose by using an object that is ordinarily lawfully possessed in an unlawful way. An example of  a possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose charge where the individual  used an ordinarily lawfully possessed object would be unlawfully striking an individual with a baseball bat.
