I have done extensive research into the National Firearms Act of 1934. My results indicate that it has no use except, to keep law abiding citizens from owning automatic weapons and short barreled weapons. This is acomplished by requiring payment of a high user tax and complicated application forms.









The liberals in Congress are of the assumption that the machinegun ban of 1986 will lessen crime. It is their opinion that criminals will not be able to obtain fully automatic weapons. This view has been proven to be incorrect several times. 99.99\% of all automatic weapons used in crime are converted illegally. The N.F.A. of 1934 made the manufacture of a machinegun illegal, without prior approval of the ATF and payment of the use tax.









The machinegun ban of 1986 made it illegal for the ATF to collect the tax on the production of a new machinegun for private use. This eliminated any new (legal) machineguns from entering into the market. This law had 2 effects:









1. It hurt the law abiding citizen by driving up the price of legal machineguns









2. It created a hugh market for the illegal machineguns that criminals prefer to use.









Based on the above results, the honest citizens of this country would be safer if all restrictions on firearms ownership were removed

    • The NFA is repugnant to the Constitution and, according to Marbury v. Madison, is therefore null and void. Based on the writings and opinions of the Founding Fathers, who's architecual document (The Constitution) you SWORE to protect and uphold, the 2nd Amendment was created to ensure that THE PEOPLE (From which your "Power" originates) could possess the same weaponry that the Infantrymen carry. That way, the Government will never have a monopoly of force. This act along with the Omnibus Crime Control Act of 1968 and the Hughes Amendment of the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986 must go NOW. These are all Unconstitutional and obvious grabs of control over The People. We The People, by our consent, have granted the positions of power which you now fill. Start abiding by the limitations placed upon you by the Constitution, start understanding your job is NOT to simply pass more legislation and NOT to make people safe but to PROTECT OUR LIBERTY. The time for restitution is at hand.

    • NFA was passed to fight the mafia. That battle was over long ago. Let me choose my rifle's barrel length. My pistols have short barrels. They're no more dangerous than my rifles.

    • A criminal by definition does not care about the law and with enough money you can buy anything. The average law abiding citizen has little or no protection from these criminals unless they are extremely wealthy or break the law themselves to obtain equal firepower. Don't bother counting on the police they never would enter my old neighborhood at night even when automatic fire was reported.

    • I have read The Constitution of The United States of America many times, and I never recall reading any thing about Common Sense regulation and legislation in regards to bearing arms. The 2nd amendment is about defending against tyranny, and for self preservation.

    • Completely unconstitutional in my opinion. An armed populace is a strong populace. Although a repeal of the NFA would be much more effective in terms of removing unconstitutional laws, I believe it would be easier, and more possible, to repeal the Hughes amendment beforehand. Repeal it, wait 5-6 years then, when most people see that murder/crime rates continue to fall, it will be easier for them to go "what the hell" to the repealation of the NFA. Unfortunately, under the current administration, either is improbable, to say the least.

    • We must spread the word or risk loosing all rights. When the Police/Gov out guns it citizens the 2nd Amendment looses its significance. United we stand, alone we fail. X

    • Look at the crimes involving machine guns prior to 1986. You will be hard pressed to find anything.

    • The short barreled nonsense alone is reason enough to repeal this short-sighted, outdated impediment of liberty and states' tenth anendment. There was no basis 75 years ago, and none today!
