Briefly explain why you think your policy falls on that number in the spectrum. Why is this policy pro, con, or neutral? Do parts of the policy take components from both sides of the topic? For example, does it represent a solution that individuals on different sides of the topic might agree upon? Or, does the policy mainly support one perspective?
necessarily other firearms like rifles or shotguns. The policy seems lax, in that it does not put much restriction on the total volume of guns a person can buy in their lifetime. However, it is not completely against gun control. The policy takes into account that restricting the sale of handguns, which is the preferred gun for crimes, can massively take away profits from second-hand or illegal purchases. In turn, this can decrease the rate of such gun-related crimes and/or violence from occurring.

Do not use Wikipedia, news articles, etc. Go directly to the source for information): - regulations/national-firearms-act Implementation level (Circle one of the following that fits your policy): Organizational/Institutional Local State Federal Brief summary of the policy in your own words (minimum 100 words): The National Firearms Act (NFA) is a Congressional law that was created in 1934, its driving force was the gangland period during the Prohibition. It enforces $200 taxes on the manufacture and transfer of NFA firearms –shotguns, rifles, machine guns, and silencers. The act specifies that the minimum barrel length for shot guns be under 18 inches, and for rifles 16 inches. The act requires that transfer of NFA firearms be registered with the Secretary of Treasury beforehand. Vendors of such firearms require a federal firearms license and an occupational tax permit. Overall, its main goal is to limit the transactions of such firearms. The act from 1934 was amended in 1986 so that the transfer or possession of machine guns is prohibited. This prohibition is disregarded for those individuals who own a machinegun before the enactment done in 1986.
