Knoxville Area People, Question for you.........


Recommended Posts

We are looking into moving from SW TN (where cows outnumber people and I have my own range) to the area around Knoxville (Tellico, Lenoir City, Vonore, etc) and I am wondering what to expect gun wise out there?

Liberal gun hating tree huggers, Gun enthusiasts, neither side? What about any local asinine ordinances? Anything else you care to speak on about the area, feel free.

I have lived in Lenoir City off and on for over 20 years. I don't think I  can ever recall meeting anyone that was a gun hating tree hugger. During the last election I think I saw exactly 1 Hillary sign in a yard. I live in the city limits but close to the county line. At least once a month I can hear someone target practicing. As long as you live in the county and have a safe backstop you can shoot on your own property. I can't think of any local ordinances regarding firearms. It's a pretty nice place to live overall.

I know a few gun hating tree huggers, though I hesitate to lump the 2 together.  So far they're vastly outnumbered, but they're also a noisy lot and more move here every day. 

The city of Louisville (that's Lewis- ville) recent enacted an ordinance prohibiting the discharge of a firearm within 100 yds of a dwelling, road, etc.. 


Most all the "cities" prohibit it as well, but shooting on your own property is permitted outside the city limits. Neighbors that don't like the noise will be your primary issue. The further out you get, the less likely you are to have issues.  

I hear people shooting near my house all the time. I have no issue as long as the bullets don't hit my house... which they have in the past.
