Federal NFA Law may require that you show the forms to BATFE on request but State laws may have additional demands/restrictions as stated earlier, some states have prohibited what the Feds allow.
It's not enough to assume that the Federal NFA laws are you're only requirement.
I have been doing more reading and although it's not a blanket statement to say that local LE can enforce/arrest for Federal crimes, depending on the crime, they may.
Given the common view that suppressors are illegal, that paperwork is the only thing you have, at that moment, that can show your are NOT committing a criminal act.
