Common Gun Offenses in the Military

Firearms are a ubiquitous element of military culture, but our agencies go to great lengths to properly distribute them, provide training, and instill respect for weapons among our servicemembers. The Uniform Code of Military Justice provides penalties for various offenses that violate the military's approach to weapon safety.

Common gun offenses charged to military servicemembers include:

  • Carrying a concealed firearm
  • Discharging a firearm in public
  • Brandishing a firearm
  • Selling firearms
  • Improper exhibition of firearms
  • Illegally possessing firearms
  • Using a firearm while under the influence of a control substance/alcohol

The severity of these accusations varies. However, no matter what the perceived size of the weapons charge is, it is advised that you speak to defense counsel. Access to weapons, ammunition, training, and new responsibilities is critical for many military careers. Guilty verdicts in these cases cannot only result in confinement and fines, but also limited access to these things.
