Protecting Kern County's Second Amendment Rights

Any violation of California weapon laws is a serious offense and could lead to a felony charge. You may face criminal penalties if you carry or possess an illegal firearm. Our Bakersfield weapon charges defense attorney at Koenig Law Office has years of experience representing individuals facing these types of charges.
