South Jersey gun possession lawyer John B. Brennan from The Law Office of John B. Brennan is a South Jersey lawyer who believes those charged with weapons offenses deserve someone standing by their side, fighting on their behalf.
Under New Jersey law, the unlawful possession of weapons includes such devices as machine guns, rifles, shotguns, and any type of handgun. Depending on the type of weapon, those merely in possession of such devices face a second-, third-, or fourth-degree crime.

New Jersey has some of the strictest gun and weapon laws in the nation and imposes harsh penalties on those found in violation. In some cases, possession of a weapon is a secondary crime that con contribute to a more severe sentence when in combination with other offenses, such as possession of a firearm while committing a robbery.
A former prosecutor, Brennan has tried more than over 100 felony cases and resolved thousands more by way of plea negotiations in the Superior Court of New Jersey. As a member of the South Jersey Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit, Brennan was responsible for all gun-related crimes for over a decade.
One of the most common weapons charges in New Jersey is possession of a handgun without a permit to carry. This is a second-degree crime and carries a minimum term of five years in state prison, without eligibility for parole for three years.
