Transfer To an Ineligible Person (Unlawful Purchase or Sale of a Weapon)

State law prohibits the intentional transfer or sale of a pistol or semiautomatic weapon to a person who is not permitted to possess that weapon.

This offense can be charged as a felony if the ineligible transferee uses the weapon in the commission of a violent crime within a year of the transfer.

Minnesota does not grant the legal ownership of firearms to certain individuals – for example: minors, those who have certain criminal histories, and more.

This offense can be charged either as a gross misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances surrounding the charge.

Assault With a Dangerous Weapon

The law treats offenders who have used a dangerous weapon very severely. These crimes can include weapons of various types – including firearms.

Any assault with a dangerous weapon will be charged as a felony and convicted offenders are subject to both fines and jail time.

In Burnsville, Minnesota, gun charges can result in fines, or in years of imprisonment – and even a permanent revocation of your right to bear arms. In addition to sentencing penalties, you may find it difficult to obtain housing, employment, or scholarships for education.
