Dboy007, it does sound like you still need quite a bit of information on both firearm selection and other issues. By all means, make yourself at home here at TFL. We've got various forums on both the firearms issues, the legal issues, and just about everything else. Ask questions. We may not have all the answers, but I'll promise you that we have some of them.
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.
