According to the letter of the law, this would be possible. There may be certain execptions like if the weapon was used in self-defence, but the mere possession of the weapon itself is an offence. Using it to assault someone would be another charge that could be laid on top of this one if the weapon was used in an aggressive manner. The offence of possession I mentioned above is classified as a misdemeanor. It carries a maximum 1 year jail term. If you injured someone using a weapon of this nature without recourse to self defence and were charged with an assault, I believe that is classed as a felony and carries a maximum jail term of 5 years. The legislation relevant to the offence of posession is attached below.
(c) Any person who violates section 134-2, 134-4, 134-10, 134-15, or 134-16(a) shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. Any person who violates section 134-3(b) shall be guilty of a petty misdemeanor and the firearm shall be confiscated as contraband and disposed of, if the firearm is not registered within five days of the person receiving notice of the violation. [L 1988, c 275, pt of §2; am L 1994, c 204, §9]
