Violent offenses can range from simple assault to rape or murder. They can involve elements of other offenses such as theft combined with violence to form the robbery sequence of crimes. Some of these offenses carry special penalties. For example, if you are convicted of “domestic assault” instead of “simple assault”, you will lose your right to ever own firearms again as long as it is on your record. This also means you will lose your Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit or the ability to obtain one. It could mean you will lose your job if you are required to be armed while working (e.g. police officers, military, security officers, etc.). Some of these offenses carry very lengthy prison sentences. One even carries the death penalty.
