Rudy Villanueva, 31, last year filmed himself waving guns in the air, inviting police to "come get some".
Police took Villanueva up on the offer in January, seizing several weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition from the flat where the video was made.
He later pleaded guilty to firearms charges, but said he had meant no harm.
Villanueva argued that the video, posted on video-sharing website YouTube, was a misunderstanding.
Rudy Villanueva, 31, had pleaded guilty in February to being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
A multiagency task force arrested Villanueva -- the leader of the Bird Road Boys gang -- and Anthony Logan, 22, in January, days after The Miami Herald reported on several YouTube videos featuring the men.
In one video, Villanueva and Logan pointed assault rifles and handguns at the camera in a message directed at Miami-Dade's gang unit -- taunting police to ``come get some.''
''We were offended, obviously,'' said Lt. Israel McKee, head of the gang unit. "They were threatening our lives. I didn't take kindly to that.''
...South Florida's law enforcement community, which has seen four officers killed in the past six months, didn't take the video lightly.
