Successfully defending against a weapons allegation may involve some of the following factors:● The police discovered the weapon due to an illegal search and seizure and/or detention.● There may be a lawful reason for possessing the object, such as self-defence.● There may be a legitimate purpose for carrying a "weapon," such as carrying a knife for work.Whether or not a specific use of an object is considered a weapon depends on the context of the situation.
