Yes, in many states full-auto or select fire firearms are legal. They are covered under NFA.

Some examples of the types of firearms that must be registered are:
Machine guns;
The frames or receivers of machine guns;
Any combination of parts designed and intended for use in converting weapons into machine guns;
Any part designed and intended solely and exclusively for converting a weapon into a machine gun;
Any combination of parts from which a machine gun can be assembled if the parts are in the possession or under the control of a person;
Silencers and any part designed and intended for fabricating a silencer;
Short-barreled rifles;
Short-barreled shotguns;
Destructive devices; and,
“Any other weapon.”
The issue is, is that the registry for full-auto and select fire firearms is closed now. Also there is a lengthy process (imo, others will disagree) in which to purchase them. That's the short version. If you would like to know more please feel free to ask a more specific question.
