No offense taken, Arizona. I don't doubt your story, but according to the United States Criminal Code:

The national Firearms Act of 1934 (Title 26, U.S.C. Chapter 53) and the Gun Control Act of 1968 make formal provisions for the private ownership of these weapons. For an individual, (i.e. non – firearms dealer or police department) these requirements are:

Be a US Citizen at least 21 years old.
Be of sane mind.
Is not an abuser of drugs or alcohol.
Have never been convicted of a felony.
Pay a $200 Federal Transfer Tax on each weapon purchased. (This is a one – time tax, NOT a yearly tax).
Fill out BATF Form 4 - This involves getting a Signature of the "Chief Law Enforcement Officer" in your area signifying that he has no knowledge that you will use your weapon for anything other than lawful purposes.
Have your fingerprints taken and submitted to BATF with the above information.
Silencers have NEVER been illegal !

i dont think your friend is in any realistic danger here. but earlier all they had
to do was to revoke the approval. case law is clear that when BATF come
across info subsequent to the approval, that all that is needed is disqualify
the application on grounds that ....(blank). Firearm is declared contraband
and must be relinquished. so your friend got lucky.
