Jimmy Singh, a 2021 ThreeBestRated Award-Winning Criminal Lawyer, Lists Out the Consequences of Using Firearms

In recent times, gun culture is a serious threat that every nation faces in society. The world has encountered many violent firings at public places and several religious centres. The use of firearms of any kind to harm someone is a criminal offence. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of the consequences of using guns. 

We have contacted Jimmy Singh, a 2021 ThreeBestRated® award-winning criminal lawyer in Sydney, to learn about the consequences of using firearms.

Jimmy Singh says, "The consequences of using a firearm without an authorised licence or permit can result in a penalty of up to five-years imprisonment in NSW. Here, a firearm includes a gun or other weapons capable of propelling a projectile by means of an explosive. It also includes an airgun." He goes on to point out the potential outcomes:

  • The consequences of using a firearm in or near a public place can result in a maximum penalty of 10-years imprisonment.
  • The consequence of firing a firearm at a dwelling home or building with reckless disregard to the safety of any person can result in up to 14-years imprisonment.
  • Firing a firearm at a dwelling-house or other building with reckless disregard to the safety of any person during a public disorder can result in up to 16-years imprisonment.
  • Firing a firearm at a dwelling-house or other building with reckless disregard to the safety of any person in the course of organised criminal activity can result in up to 16-years imprisonment.
