I have never been arrested before. Philadelphia is so dangerous that I bought gun for my own protection. I did not have a license to carry and I got pulled over by the police. I told them about the gun and they arrested me. What will happen to me?
You were charged with Violation of the Uniform Firearms Act. Generally this is a felony of the third degree, but can be made into a misdemeanor of the first degree if you are "otherwise eligible" to get a license to carry.
This definition is somewhat complex. You sound like you are otherwise eligible. Email me if you have more questions.
