If he was on probation, odds are he doesn't have the right to own a suppressor, which makes it a federal crime. I own 3 suppressors and went thru my BATFE paperwork to get them. You have to be squeeky clean to get approved and stay squeeky clean to keep them.

Resin replica RPG's, LAWS, and even TOW rockets in spent tubes can be purchased from a number of retailers. Curious, as I did not think it would have been illegal.

Wow! I hope he doesn't fire a fake rocket from his fake launcher and cause a fake explosion that does mountains of fake damage!

Besides, how would this thing, even in its prime military form, be a WMD? It cannot wipe out a city or any large military installation, it can do a bit of localized damage, period.

Yeesh, law enforcement, is this all you have to busy yourself with?
Is that so

The Second Amendment gives him the right to bear arms, so what is the big deal?

The Second Amendment says about REAL arms, fake ones are not covered. So it's a clear offense here.

I have also seen these for sale at gunshows, on-line and in catalogs. Florida sure has some crazy laws. They also make it a third degree felony to have one of those so-called "training grenades", that are totally inert and harmless unless used as an impact weapon. They list these as hoax bombs/hoax explosive device.
