Weapons Charges

The law firm of Runyon & Runyon provides comprehensive criminal defense representation to members of the community charged with a weapons offense. Gun and weapons crimes are enforced vigorously in Tennessee.

Some weapons charges are classified as misdemeanors, such as unlawful possession of a weapon, which can apply to allegations of carrying a firearm, knife with a blade longer than 4 inches, or a club "with intent to go." However, many weapons crimes carry the potential for significant jail or prison time in Tennessee.
