    It was my understanding that Fl didn't restrict us beyond the NFA, meaning we could have registered SBR, SBS, DD, Supressors, and autos. However, I triped over this statute while looking for another.

    http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes...TM&Title=->2007->Ch0790->Section 221#0790.221

    90.221 Possession of short-barreled rifle, short-barreled shotgun, or machine gun; penalty.--

    (1) It is unlawful for any person to own or to have in his or her care, custody, possession, or control any short-barreled rifle, short-barreled shotgun, or machine gun which is, or may readily be made, operable; but this section shall not apply to antique firearms.

    So I guess my info was out of date?

    This was nice to see though,
    790.335 Prohibition of registration of firearms.--

    (1) LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS AND INTENT.--

    (a) The Legislature finds and declares that:

    1. The right of individuals to keep and bear arms is guaranteed under both the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and s. 8, Art. I of the State Constitution.

    2. A list, record, or registry of legally owned firearms or law-abiding firearm owners is not a law enforcement tool and can become an instrument for profiling, harassing, or abusing law-abiding citizens based on their choice to own a firearm and exercise their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed under the United States Constitution. Further, such a list, record, or registry has the potential to fall into the wrong hands and become a shopping list for thieves.

    Just need to read the rest of the statute:

    790.221, Paragraph 3:
    (3) Firearms in violation hereof which are lawfully owned and possessed under provisions of federal law are excepted.
