Overview of Wisconsin Statute 941.298: Firearm Silencers

The statute defines a “firearm silencer” as any device for silencing, muffling or diminishing the report of a portable firearm, as well as any combination of parts designed, redesigned, or intended for use in making such a device, and any part intended only for use in the making of a silencer.

Anyone possessing, selling or delivering a silencer in Wisconsin is guilty of a Class H felony, unless you are police officer, member of the armed forces or national guard, and have possession of the silencer in the line of duty or in compliance with written policies; or if you have complied with the licensing and registration requirements under 26 USC 5801 to 5872.

In Wisconsin, how long does a Firearm Silencers charge stay on your record?

Selling just 1 silencer in Wisconsin is an offense that could lead to a 6 year prison term, and even if not convicted, the charges could remain on your record for life.

We know
prosecutors
because we were prosecutors.

Tom Grieve, the firm's managing attorney and founder, is a former state prosecutor and is not the only ex-prosecutor at the firm. We love hiring attorneys from both sides of the wall to bring as many perspectives to fight your case as aggressively as possible. The State of Wisconsin likes it when you choose the run-of-the-mill fee to plea™ lawyers who don't even know how to analyze and defend cases instead of experienced criminal attorneys:
