Legal if you satisfy federal requirements, eg tax stamps. Also, must be registered with DPS. I don't think many are aware of the registration requirement.
Can you show me where we are required to register with the Department of Public Safety? This is news to me.

§ 97-37-31. Silencers on firearms; armor piercing ammunition; manufacture, sale, possession or use unlawful.

It shall be unlawful for any person, persons, corporation or manufacturing establishment, not duly authorized under federal law, to make, manufacture, sell or possess any instrument or device which, if used on firearms of any kind, will arrest or muffle the report of said firearm when shot or fired or armor piercing ammunition as defined in federal law. Any person violating this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, shall be fined not more than Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00), or imprisoned in the penitentiary not more than thirty (30) days, or both. All such instruments or devices shall be registered with the Department of Public Safety and any law enforcement agency in possession of such instruments or devices shall submit an annual inventory of such instruments and devices to the Department of Public Safety. The Commissioner of Public Safety shall document the information required by this section.

Called a friend Who ran the firearm permit division for the MDPS and he knows nothing about this. He is going to call around Monday and see if there is such a registry. I want to be compliant with the law but I am not thrilled about a state registry. Can anyone here tell me more about this?
