How gun crimes can escalate a criminal charge

Possessing a gun in the commission of another crime can escalate your legal situation. For example, if you have a gun or weapon during an assault, you could face a more severe charge of aggravated assault. If you were committing the crime of larceny, the possession of a gun or weapon could upgrade the offense to robbery.
