Crime… and its Aftermath

GUNS AND WEAPONS: YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS: Lesson 6

Prohibited Weapons Other Than Guns

  • Certain weapons in Tennessee are illegal because their only purpose is to cause serious injuries or death.
  • This includes:
    • bombs
    • grenades
    • switch blades
    • brass knuckles
    • sawed-off shotguns and other specific guns
  • If found with these weapons, you could be facing lots of jail time and huge fines.
  • It is a crime to intentionally or knowingly possess, manufacture, transport, repair, or sell these illegal weapons. (T.C.A. § 39-17-1302)
