Under Colorado law, a deadly weapon is defined as knives, both loaded and unloaded firearms, bludgeons, or any other object capable of producing serious bodily injury or death. You may be charged with unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon or unlawful possession of a weapon if you are accused of carrying a knife concealed on you, carrying a firearm concealed on you, or having in your possession a firearm, explosive, or dangerous device within the building or on the property of the general assembly or other qualifying state government buildings.
This offense is a Class 2 misdemeanor and is punishable by 3 months to one year in jail as well as substantial fines. Because of the potential jeopardy that weapons can put people in, charges like these are taken very seriously in Colorado. Being secure in your selection of Denver Criminal Defense attorney is imperative.
