Sounds like it's alleged there was a firearm in the vehicle. Knowledge of its presence is an element of the offense which means the prosecution has to prove you knew about it.

As a passenger in the car, you could be charged if you had knowledge of the presence of the firearm. I hope you did not make any statements to the police. Consider retaining an attorney.
The police believed you had knowledge of a firearm in the car. I strongly suggest you get an attorney.
