Actually, that depends on where you are and what the charge is. In the U.S. any felony will prevent you from buying a gun legally, but misdemeanors do not, except for misdemeanors of domestic violence.

With a misdemeanour assault charge in Virginia can you own a handgun in Tennessee?

It sort of depends, but if the assault charge is still on your record, you will probably be denied by the TBI if you try to buy a gun in Tennessee. If so, you can appeal it, and it may or may not be overturned. Tennessee is one of only a couple of states that uses its own state system for gun purchases, instead of the federal system only like most other states, and they don't follow the exact federal protocol.
