You can be charged with felony gun possession. Your lawyer will use your lack of a prior record to try to negotiate a plea bargain but gun possession is treated very seriously these days and jail is possible. You need to hire a lawyer ASAP.

New York takes gun cases very seriously. The prosecutors almost always seek upstate jail time, even on first arrests. Your best hope is to hire an experienced attorney and try to show that it was an illegal search and seizure.
