    Okay, I was thinking of the Brady Law.

    "On November 30, 1993, the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act was enacted, amending the Gun Control Act of 1968. ...
    Brady Law became effective on February 28, 1994, and ceased to apply on November 30, 1998."

    The "once a machine gun always a machine gun" is an administrative rule created by the ATF. It is not part of a law.

    The FDR regime created the "administrative state" and law making was degenerated. Congress passes "laws" which are little more than general guidelines. These guidelines are tossed over the fence to the various administrative agencies which use their own discretion to create rules. This gives the congresscritters plenty of cover - when an agency comes out with a rule that really PO's the citizenry they can claim it's not their fault - the agency did it.

    Even though these rules were dreamed up by an unelected bureaucrat and are not a genuine law passed by your elected representatives, violation will still land you in prison.

    Like Joe Sobran said: "The Constitution poses no serious threat to our form of government."
    “After all is said and done, successful rifle shooting on the range is nothing more than first finding a rifle and lot of ammunition which will do precisely the same thing shot after shot, and then developing the same skill in the rifleman.” ~ Capt. E. C. Crossman (The Book of the Springfield)

    Not disagreeing with you at all.

    Until someone pays to walk this all the way to SCOTUS, it is the law of the land.
