Default Is using class 3 firearms for SD illegal?

I was scrolling through the class 3 firearms section of gunbroker and started wondering this. Are suppressors, select fire guns, AOW's, SBR, and SBSs legal for home defense or concealed carry? Or would it just be made to look bad on you in court if you used them?

What if you were in a state where they're all legal to own.
Would it be legal then?

Yes of course. But remember you must first comply with the NFA rules of the Federal Laws first. The Federal Laws must be obeyed in order to purchase your restricted NFA firearm.

I really don't that much at all about those types of guns. I've never even seen one of any of those types of guns outside of pictures and videos.

All of them are legal for SD, as long as you own and carry them legally, with no unauthorized mods. Keep the ATF stamped form in your car, in case you get pulled over. A recent case of justifiable homicide (by a motorist who was assaulted by angry bikers) turned difficult for the defendant, but he was acquitted.

This is the answer I was looking for. I was thinking a suppressed gun would be good for HD so your ears wouldn't be as badly damaged.
