In 1968 The Gun Control Act (GCA) subsumed the National Firearms Act of 1934. The GCA included the so-called “new NFA,” and was introduced to correct perceived shortfalls of the National Firearms Act of 1934. The GCA regulates the interstate transfer of firearms and largely prohibits the transfer of firearms interstate except among licensed manufacturers, importers, and dealers (Federal Firearms Licensee’s.) Regulation and policing of these requirements is the responsibility of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (BATF.) The GCA is codified under 18 U.S.C. § 921. Firearms defined under the GCA are known as “Title I” firearms, and include ordinary handguns, rifles, and shotguns. The GCA also regulates and prohibits the possession of firearms by certain classes of individuals who pose a threat to public safety.
