Unlawful Discharge of a Firearm

Experienced Criminal Defense for Arizona Weapons Charges

The unlawful discharge of a firearm in Arizona is treated very seriously due to the potential danger that it poses to others in the community. In 2000, "Shannon's Law" was enacted in the state of Arizona as the result of a tragedy where a teenager was hit and killed with a stray bullet.
