39. Except there is no way to register existing guns using the NFA model

due to 5th amendment issues the law was changed in 1968 such that gun owners cannot register their guns. Manufacturers and importers are required to register the guns. When a person buys a registered gun then that transfer is recorded. So the NFA is not useful precedence if you wish to register existing guns.

From US v. Freed:

Under the present Act only possessors who lawfully 604*604 make, manufacture, or import firearms can and must register them; the transferee does not and cannot register.


Once initially registered, the weapon is transferred and the name of the owner is changed in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record.
