One issue with which criminal defense attorneys must often grapple is what constitutes a "weapon" under Florida's criminal code. A recent decision out of the Second District Court of Appeal, C.W. v. State, has added some additional clarification as to whether, and under what circumstances, BB guns may be considered weapons. C.W. was a juvenile who brought a spring loaded B.B. gun with him in his bookbag to school. When a security officer discovered the BB gun, C.W. was arrested, charged, and eventually convicted of possession of a weapon on school property.
