Transferable Machine Guns
If you have ever looked into buying a machine gun you have likely noticed the exorbitant prices. This is due to the Firearm Owners Protection Act passed on May 19, 1986.
Firearms already possessed Pre 1986 by civilians on Form 4s can still be transferred, but no additional machine guns can be transferred to civilians. In short, if it wasn’t on a Form 4 on May 19, 1986, it cannot be owned by a civilian. As any macro-economics 101 student can tell you, the machine gun supply has not been able to expand to meet demand. Because supply cannot expand, and is even contracting whenever a machine gun is destroyed, the price of available machine guns has continuously risen since May 19, 1986. If you want a machine gun, there is no time like the present to buy one.
