National Firearms Act of 1934

Category: Gun Stuff | Comments Off on National Firearms Act of 1934


The National Firearms Act of 1934 provides for the registration, and the taxing of the transfer, of a class of weapons described as NFA Title 2 weapons … machine guns, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, silencers …

The new manufacture of machine guns or the conversion of semi auto weapons to full auto weapons that are transferable to individuals has been prohibited since May 19, 1986. … all transferable machine guns that are available for sale to the general public must have been manufactured and registered prior to May 19, 1986.

Since transfer and manufacture for transfer to “individuals” is restricted, perhaps our representative “big tent” government can find a way to simply issue these items to a new group of “first responders”, i.e., CHL Holders and other well-qualified (dare I say, Well-Regulated?) persons.

It seems like a new legally-defined group of “First Responders” could transcend the dreaded definition of “individuals”, “private citizens”, or the (gasp) “general public” in a legal sense. (Better still, if these laws could be scrapped completely).

A national ‘Shall Issue hardware’ law. Hmmm …

Think of the boost to the US economy, that is, if there are any US firearm manufacturers left by then. Think of the deterrant value to would-be “Jihadists” looking for targets of opportunity in the general population.

The whole 2nd Amendment thing looks like it’s not only a good idea, it’s The Law.
