Re: Basic NFA Facts
There are two sets of regulations: federal and state.
Federally, it is possible (with appropriate tax paid) to own a silencer, machine gun, short-barrel shotgun, short-barrel rifle, destructive device, or "any other weapon" (AOW).
Your state may outright ban one or more of these items. In some states, ownership is permitted, but using the item is illegal. In many states, compliance with Federal regulations is all that is required.
So, where do you live? And welcome to TFF!
