Weapons Offences

Law Firm Handling Firearm Possession Arrests

It is very difficult to lawfully retain a firearm in Canada, as weapons are highly regulated and generally prohibited. If you are facing charges for a weapons offence, it is in your best interest to seek the advice of an experienced criminal defence lawyer who will work diligently to protect your rights.

At The Law Offices of Robert L. Dick, our lawyers have handled thousands of cases in B.C. courts. We provide a vigorous defence against weapons charges while acting with discretion to preserve the reputations of our clients.

Weapons Importation Offences: Burnaby, Coquitlam, Surrey


There are severe mandatory minimum sentences for a conviction on possession of firearms charges in B.C. This is particularly troubling for tourists and visitors from the United States who are not familiar with the law and can find themselves facing a minimum three-year jail sentence.

In addition to defending clients against firearms possession charges, we also handle cases involving:

  • Weapon importation
  • Transporting firearms
  • Prohibited weapons
  • Peace Bonds

The majority of weapons charges are accompanied by mandatory minimum sentences upon conviction. Our lawyers seek resolutions to these matters that protect the record of our clients and do not involve jail time. Our experience with complex evidentiary issues aids us in achieving the best possible results for our clients.

Peace Bond (Section 810)


Section 810 of the criminal code makes provisions for a peace bond, which acts as an alternative to spousal assault charges. Although a peace bond does not result in a criminal record, it can limit contact with the alleged victim, children and family home, resulting in many of the complications that accompany a criminal charge.
