The Firearms Owners’ Protection Act (FOPA) of 1986 banned a civilian from ownership or transfer rights of any fully automatic firearms that were not registered with the federal government as of May 19, 1986. Fully automatic firearms manufactured and registered before this cutoff date are still legal to own and transfer. Also, FOPA clarified the GCA definition as to who is defined as a “prohibited person.”
