The “First Line of Defense” to alleged Violations of the Uniform Firearms Act: Attorney Joseph Paletta
Everyone knows that the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States grants the “right of the people to keep and bear arms.” However, this right is not without restrictions. In Pennsylvania, pistols and revolvers (commonly known as “handguns”) are defined as “firearms” and are regulated by the Uniform Firearms Act, Title 18 Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes Annotated, Section 6101.
The two most common alleged violations of the Uniform Firearms Act are,
- Carrying Firearms Without a License
- Persons not to Possess a Firearm
If you have been charged with V.U.F.A. (Violation of the Uniform Firearms Act) in Pittsburgh or Allegheny County, you should immediately contact a lawyer experienced in defending this type of prosecution at trial. Attorney Joseph Paletta has defended dozens of these cases at Trial and through Pre-Trial Motions to Suppress unlawfully obtained evidence. Attorney Paletta can be reached at email@example.com or (412) 391-7999 for a free consultation.
