Gun Trafficking Defense
The sale and purchase of firearms are strictly regulated in Florida and under federal law. Selling or distributing firearms without a license under certain circumstances is against the law. Additionally, licensed firearm dealers must follow many state and federal regulations such as complying with waiting periods and conducting background checks before selling a gun. Law enforcement agents at the federal and state levels devote substantial manpower and financial resources to investigating people suspected of selling or purchasing firearms illegally.
