While Texas has some of the nation’s most favorable laws regarding firearm possession and ownership, it is still common for Texans to be charged with guns and weapons charges. Types of weapon and firearm charges include improper gun discharge, carrying a firearm illegally, selling or gifting a gun illegally, and using a weapon in the commission of a crime.

Criminal charges for the improper use of guns or weapons can be charged either as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances of the alleged incident and the type of weapon involved. Texas penal code makes it clear the types of weapons its residents cannot have and the potential penalties. If you are convicted for violating these laws, you could face severe penalties, including heavy fines and lengthy prison sentences, particularly if you are already a convicted felon.

Which Weapons Are Illegal in Texas?

Weapon offenses in Texas criminal law include the possession of:

  • Explosive weapons
  • Machine guns

  • Brass knuckles
  • Zip guns (improvised handguns)
