The National Firearms Act, or NFA, is a law that was passed in 1934 that regulates the making and transfer of short-barreled rifles (SBR), short-barreled shotguns (SBS), silencers/suppressors, machine guns, AOWs and other destructive devices.

These items are restricted, requiring individuals to pay a tax on and register the device with BATFE prior to owning.
