What’s the penalty?
Okay, so there are 3 penalties involved if caught with jammers in TN.

1.) possession of jammers is a Class C misdemeanor
2.) operating a motor vehicle with jammers installed is a Class C misdemeanor
3.) actively jamming a LEO trying to get your speed is a Class B misdemeanor

So, if the state wanted to throw the book at you, if you are caught actively jamming a LEO, you could be charge with 2 Class C misdemeanors and 1 Class B misdemeanor.

Penalties:

Class C misdemeanor:

not greater than thirty (30) days in jail or a fine not to exceed fifty dollars ($50.00), or both, unless otherwise provided by statute

Class B misdemeanor:

not greater than six (6) months in jail or a fine not to exceed five hundred dollars ($500), or both, unless otherwise provided by statute

Also, the LEO can:

(e) Any radar jamming device that is used in violation of this section is subject to seizure by any law enforcement officer and may be confiscated and destroyed by order of the court in which a violation of this section is charged.

And while that says radar jamming device, according to the statute, that includes laser jammers.

Honestly it does not read like this is an option. Ha.
You have to make them think it's the gun and not JTG. You have to be quick about it. I do agree with RaggedEdge in that there are not a lot of people with jammers in TN, but there are shops that do install them. I believe there are about 2 installers of ALP that are dealers for them as well, so you can still get them professionally installed, I don't think it is that much of an issue, unless you just are asking for it.
