21. It seems the weapon was legal in AZ but not in CA

I could go out and buy a fully automatic weapon with a Suppressor(silencer), and do it legally. There is a ClassIII dealer about 10 minutes from here. All I have to do is pass a background check and pay a Transfer Tax on the weapon and Suppressor. It is legal to own such a weapon in Maine. Now, If I move to MA and take that legal weapon with me, if caught, I would be arrested and likely sent to prison.

To the FBI, this would not be an issue, since, under Federal Law, the weapon is legally purchased and Transfer Tax paid. The violation would be of State Law.
