National Firearms Act (1934)

June 26, 1934National Firearms Act

President Franklin D. Roosevelt hoped this act would eliminate automatic-fire weapons like machine guns from America’s streets.
Other firearms such as short-barreled shotguns and rifles, parts of guns like silencers, as well as other “gadget-type” firearms hidden in canes and such were also targeted.
All gun sales and gun manufacturers were slapped with a $200 tax on each firearm (This was during the Great Depression; so, that would be a tax of $2,525+ today)

All buyers were required to fill out paperwork subject to Treasury Dept. approval.
