National Firearms Act (1934)

June 26, 1934
National 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.

Gun Owners Protection Act (1986) became effective

Never forget
Fight for change

Today was the date the Hughes Amendment to the 1986 Gun Owners Protection Act became effective.
The amendment effectively prohibited new manufacture of machine guns by private citizen in the United States

This WILL be reversed, WHEN we demand it

United States v Miller (1939)

United States v Miller
May 15, 1939

The United States Supreme Court decided today, in 1939, that the 1934 National Firearms Act does not violate the 2nd Amendment

Since then, this decision has been used to validate most federal level gun control legislation

Do your own research on the Miller decision.
Learn, then act. Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it
