Cur­rently, 37 states allow for the own­er­ship of NFA firearms, al­though some have spe­cific rules, such as whether a ma­chine gun must be reg­is­tered at the state or county level.

Here is a break­down for the other states, as well as the Dis­trict of Columbia, that ban or oth­er­wise re­strict ma­chine guns and other NFA firearms:

Cal­i­for­nia bans own­er­ship of NFA weapons, in­clud­ing au­to­matic weapons and short-bar­reled shot­guns or ri­fles pro­hib­ited with­out a De­part­ment of Jus­tice “Dan­ger­ous Weapons Per­mit.”

Delaware bans ma­chine guns, sup­pres­sors, de­struc­tive de­vices and short-bar­reled shot­guns for the av­er­age cit­i­zen.

Hawaii bans ma­chine guns, short-bar­reled ri­fles, short-bar­reled shot­guns and si­lencers/sup­pres­sors for the av­er­age cit­i­zen.

Illi­nois bans au­to­matic firearms, short-bar­reled shot­guns and sup­pres­sors. Short-bar­reled ri­fles are al­lowed only for Cu­rios and Relics li­cense-hold­ers or mem­bers of a bona fide military reen­act­ment group.

Mas­sachusetts: A ma­chine gun li­cense is re­quired to pos­sess a ma­chine gun.

Min­nesota bans ma­chine guns and short-bar­reled shot­guns in most cases, un­less they are clas­si­fied as cu­rios or relics.

Ne­vada: Pos­ses­sion and own­er­ship of a short-bar­reled ri­fle, short-bar­reled shot­gun, ma­chine gun (se­lec­tive-fire weapon) or si­lencer—all NFA items—are sub­ject to fed­eral purview and reg­u­la­tion.

New Jersey: Pos­ses­sion of a ma­chine gun re­quires a state li­cense, which is granted on a “may is­sue” ba­sis by a county su­pe­rior court judge. Ma­chine gun li­censes are ex­tremely dif­fi­cult to ob­tain.

New York bans own­er­ship of ma­chine guns, sup­pres­sors, short­bar­reled ri­fles and short-bar­reled shot­guns for the av­er­age cit­i­zen.

Rhode Is­land: It is a vi­o­la­tion of state law to pos­sess any NFA weapon or si­lencers, with the ex­cep­tion of Class III FFLS.

Texas: Texas Pe­nal Code Sec­tion 46.05 re­quires that “ex­plo­sive weapons,” “ma­chine guns,” “short-bar­rel firearms” and “firearm si­lencers,” as de­fined in Sec­tion 46.01, be “reg­is­tered in the

Na­tional Firearms Reg­is­tra­tion and Trans­fer Record main­tained by the Bureau of Al­co­hol, To­bacco, Firearms and Ex­plo­sives or clas­si­fied as a cu­rio or relic by the United States De­part­ment of Jus­tice.”

Washington: Ma­chine guns and short-bar­reled shot­guns, un­less pur­chased be­fore July 1, 1994, are il­le­gal for non-law-en­force­ment pos­ses­sion.

Washington, D.C., bans au­to­matic firearms, short-bar­reled ri­fles, short-bar­reled shot­guns and si­lencers.

Wis­con­sin: Ma­chine guns are restricted; ex­cep­tions ap­ply.
