What happens if you live in New York or any state where some Class III firearms are banned but plan to use and keep them in another state where they are legal? Can you a resident of a state where the item is banned purchase, store, and use the items in a state where its legal.
According to the ATF, an individual can purchase an item restricted by the NFA that is not permitted in the state of residence of the trustee, when the trust will be located, and item will be only used and maintained in states where it is legal.
This means a NY resident can purchase a class III firearm in PA when it is under a PA trust and the firearm is kept and used in PA.

Missouri House Bill 2034 SECTION 571.020
This act allows licensed importers, manufacturers, dealers, or collectors to possess, manufacture, transport, repair, or sell a firearm silencer as a curio, ornament, or keepsake.
Currently, it is not a crime for a person to possess, manufacture, transport, repair, or sell a firearm silencer if such action was incident to dealing with the silencer as a curio, ornament, or keepsake, or it is used in a lawful dramatic performance, but only if the silencer is in a non-functioning condition. Under this act, the silencer would not have to be in such non-functioning condition.
This section is identical to certain provisions to SCS/SB 1172 (2008).
18 PA.C.S. § 6103 deals with crimes committed with firearms. Specifically, "If any person commits or attempts to commit a crime enumerated in section 6105 (relating to persons not to possess, use, manufacture, control, sell or transfer firearms) when armed with a firearm contrary to the provisions of this sub-chapter, that person may, in addition to the punishment provided for the crime, also be punished as provided by this sub-chapter." (18 PA.C.S. § 6103).
Section 3.5 Lost or stolen registration documents. A person possessing a firearm registered as required by the NFA must retain proof of registration, that is, the registration form showing registration of the firearm to the person, which must be made available to ATF upon request.53 If a registrant discovers that a Form 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6A, or 10 is stolen, lost or destroyed, the registrant must immediately report the theft, loss, or destruction in writing to the NFA Branch.54 The report must contain the details of the situation. ATF will issue a duplicate copy of the registration document as the circumstances warrant.If you need to contact a local ATF field office follow this link for the AFT field division contact information.
According to the Sun Sentinal, Peaden the sponsor of the bill "Intended it to exempt places like defense plants, Air Force bases, things like that," "But not Disney. Not at all."
But on the same day that the House took its final vote on the gun bill, the exemption for explosives companies was revised so that it also includes "property owned or leased by an employer who has obtained a permit" under federal law for such explosives.
Disney has such a permit, for the extensive fireworks used in its theme parks.
It appears that Disney's letter to employees is not an attempt to violate the law, but they were able to get an exemption from the law as they state.
writes legislation to help process Class III transfers
One issue that citizens of many states face is the fact that the BATF forms which are necessary to complete a transfer of ownership of a Class III or NFA weapon (or to make certain Class III weapons) ostensibly that a local chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) sign the transfer forms. In Tennessee, this is normally the sheriff of the individual's county of residence except in Davidson County where it is the Chief of Police.
Some Tennessee law enforcement officers were unaware of the federal requirement and have taken the position that they were not required by law to sign these federal forms. In response to that problem, TFA helped write and pass legislation which requires the Tennessee chief law enforcement officers (CLEO) to cooperate in the completion of the BATF forms:
39-17-1361. Execution of documents by sheriff or chief of police. --
The sheriff or chief of police of the city of residence of a person purchasing any firearm, defined by the National Firearms Act, 26 U.S.C. § 5845 et seq., shall execute within fifteen (15) business days of any request all documents required to be submitted by the purchaser if the purchaser is not prohibited from possessing firearms pursuant to § 39-17-1316.
Despite this legislation, many CLEO's in Tennessee still refuse to process the paperwork for form 4 acquisitions. To resolve this issue, a Tennessee NFA Firearms Trust can be helpful. If you wish to purchase a class III firearm in TN please Contact a NFA Trust Attorney in Tennessee.
