About Gun Charges in Tennessee
Since guns are specifically designed to cause damage to animals and other humans, Tennessee recognizes that there are certain situations in which gun ownership is prohibited.
In this state, you are not allowed to own a gun if you:
- Were convicted of illegal alcohol sales
- Are addicted to drugs or alcohol
- Are under 18 years old
- Are of unsound mind
- Are a fugitive from justice
- Were convicted of a felony that resulted in more than one year of prison time (unless it was expunged or pardoned)
Additionally, certain types of guns are illegal to own in Tennessee, such as short-barreled rifles, machine guns, and short-barreled shotguns. Each firearm that is illegally possessed is considered a separate offense. The laws surrounding firearms are complex and abundant. A knowledgeable Memphis gun crime attorney will be able to help you figure out your next best steps for moving forward.
