American citizens may exercise the right to bear arms ... but aliens may be deported from the U.S. for even minor-firearms related offenses involving the purchasing, manufacturing, using, carrying, or selling of guns.1 If you have just been arrested or charged, it is important you hire a good criminal defense lawyer familiar with immigration law right away to try to plea your case down to a non-deportable offense. But even if you have already been convicted, there may still be ways to overturn it.
If you are a legal alien who has just been arrested, charged, or convicted of a firearms-related offense in Nevada, call our Las Vegas immigration criminal defense attorneys at 702-DEFENSE (702-333-3673) right away for a free consultation. We may be able to help you stay in the U.S. and keep your resident status.
