Depending on what you own, you may find WA to a less gun friendly than FL. Machine guns, SBS and SBR were made contraband in 1994. The only way to have them in WA was to prove they were registered by 1994 or earlier. Silencers are allowed, but use is a gross misdemeanor. WA is the only state that allows silencer possession and bans use. AOW's and DD's are allowed.
