NFA history??

Postby redbarron06 » Tue Nov 16, 2010 8:50 am

I know the why, but I am looking for the who and the when. The original bill, where it started sponsers and co-sposners. Did it start in the house or the senate, how was the origianal bill ammendmend, when was the $200 tax added? I have done one search after another but can not seem to come up with accounts between introduction and it becoming law. Can anybody help me out here.

Not sure what info you already have, but did find this much. Was originally started by Pres. Franklin Roosevelt,
Atty. Gen. Homer Cummings & staff did the actual writing of the bill ( HR 9066 ).

Here is the link to who introduced the bill into the House.

This link doesn't go into details. You have to belong to some ASSN. for access.

Obviously this bill is so outdated, it's sickening.

Anyway, hope this helps somewhat.

BTW, loved those old Hueys. Saved our bacon many times. Medivac got me out 4/25/67 after I took 5 hits from
auto weapons fire & grenades. Gotta love those guys!!

If you can get hold of the book "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross, there is a good story about the history of the NFA and the various ramifications of same. If you don't have that book, you should get it...read it as often as you do the King James Bible. Not john Lott, who is also a great pro-gun writer, but John Ross.

I was wondering as to the origin. Hoping maybe it was started in the senate and the possibility of it being overturned as a "bill of revenue".

That leads into another question, now that SCOTUS has confirmed 2A as an individual right, could the NFA tax be repealed through the courts as it is taxing a right?

I have wondered the same thing. More concerning, the registration requirement.

I think in the next ten years we could see the NFA tax, the restriction on post '86 guns, and possibly the state charge to do a background check.
