Well, if you shoot the guy, you may get off on that because your use of lethal force was justified. But you'll still be going to federal prison (for 10 years, I believe) for the National Firearms Act violation.

That is, of course, unless you've gone through all the formalities, and paid the $200 tax, to register your short barrel shotgun under the NFA. And of course that is assuming that the short barrel shotgun doesn't violate state law.
