Know the Law

Under Project Safe Neighborhoods, United States prosecutors are ready to bring cases involving illegal gun use to federal court. This means that if anyone is caught with an illegal gun, they probably won’t be entitled to bail — instead, they'll go straight to jail. And, if that’s not bad enough, if they are convicted in federal court, they can spend up to 10 years in jail. There are no second chances under this program.

So it’s smart to stay away from guns if you or anyone you know is in one of the categories described below. Save yourself, your friend, or your relatives from jail time — read this information and test your knowledge by taking our quiz.
