HAS THAT STOLEN GUN YOU BRING TO MY TAMPA BAY OFFICE EVER BEEN USED IN A CRIME?

Has that gun you just bought so you stand your ground with pride in Tampa Bay ever been reported as stolen? And even better, was the gun used in some sensational Florida crime? If intrepid  Clearwater Criminal Defense Lawyers want to know, so should you. Here’s how to find out if any gun with a serial number is stolen.

 Hunters at Rest, 1871. Are these Florida Rifles stolen?
Go to the Florida Crime Information Center, which unfortunately is not the name of my office, but is part of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Simply put the serial number of the gun into the search engine, then presto like using a magic eight ball you’ll find out instantly if your weapon or firearm has been reported as stolen. There are also sections to check on other stolen property such as boats, vehicles, vehicle parts and license plates. Why not check everything you own?
What should you do if you are in possession of a stolen gun? If your favorite Clearwater Criminal Defense Attorney has told you once he’s told you a thousand times, don’t bring that damn firearm into my office, especially if you’ve murdered or shot someone with it. Don’t shoot my web page, it’s not the web page’s fault. Put the gun on the table. Walk away. Walk back to the gun. Unload the gun. Put the gun back on the table.
