Congressmen Begin Taking Aim At NFA

From Bearing Arms:

in response to the Biden Administration’s proposed rule regarding pistol stabilizing braces, Congressman Jeff Duncan introduced the No Frivolous Applications for Short-Barreled Shotguns (NFA SBS) Act.

This legislation will remove Short-Barreled Shotguns (SBSs) from the National Firearms Act (NFA) to allow SBSs to be treated just as any other shotgun, thus preventing the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) from forcing otherwise law-abiding gun owners to destroy, register, or surrender their legally acquired pistol-braced firearms.

Arkansas Removes State NFA Regulations

From Ammoland:

SB 400, now Act 495, eliminates the Arkansas ban on silenced (suppressed) firearms. The old law made it illegal to use, possess, make, repair, sell or otherwise deal in suppressed firearms.  Senator Ballinger is reported to have told the Senate that there were about 10,000 people who owned suppressors in Arkansas, under the National Firearms Act (NFA).

The National Firearms Act Primer


Introduced into the 73rd Congress on May 28, 1934, as H.R. 9741 by U.S. Rep. Robert “Bob” Doughton, a North Carolina Democrat, the legislation sailed through Capitol Hill in less than a month. For historical perspective, the country was amid the Great Depression and lawmakers in the same Democrat-controlled Congress also sped the Securities Act, which established the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the National Industrial Recovery Act, which established the Public Works Administration, to the waiting hands of President Franklin Roosevelt for signature. The measure passed both chambers on a voice vote, with no record of which lawmakers approved it.
