Federal law trumps state law. From http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/18/I/44/921
Quote:
(24) The terms "firearm silencer" and "firearm muffler" mean any
device for silencing, muffling, or diminishing the report of a
portable firearm, including any combination of parts, designed or
redesigned, and intended for use in assembling or fabricating a
firearm silencer or firearm muffler, and any part intended only for
use in such assembly or fabrication.
Silencers are defined as firearms in the US Code. It is illegal to possess one without it being registered.
