How to use "Gun for hire" in context?
Gun for hire is a term used in criminal law to describe a person who provides their firearms for the purpose of committing crimes. Persons who engage in gun for hire activities can be charged with various crimes, including homicide, robbery, and kidnapping.
Gun for hire offenses can be particularly dangerous for the victim, as the perpetrator is not inhibited by moral or ethical considerations. This makes it difficult for law enforcement to apprehend the criminal, as the suspect may be armed and willing to use their weapon against the victim.
The statute that defines gun for hire crimes is the United States Criminal Code, which is superseded by state law.
