Just like the private sale law that requires a backgroun check in Illinois, the end of the law it states may or may not be enforced. For real. They are steering towards law enforcement deciding the law instead of the law being a law. Nothing new here. No clarity.

If you had an ldc on that .22 would it now be considered a firearm with a silencer that falls under NFA laws?
I realize this is an old, old thread, but I wanted to respond to this so any future searches will have this information.

NFA is federal. No city, county, or state law will affect it. The state considering an air rifle as a firearm is not going to trigger a federal violation. The feds still consider an air rifle as a non-firearm. That being said, if the STATE has laws on the books about "silencers," as they refer to them, you may be in trouble there.

New Jersey is very specific about silencers on air guns whether add on or built into the barrel shroud they are definitely against the law. In NY they are ok for casual shooting but a no no for hunting.
