Bill Sponsorship: Veterans' Heritage Firearms Act
Source: HR420/S798
  • Provides a 90-day amnesty period during which veterans and their family members can register in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record any firearm acquired before October 31, 1968, by a veteran while a member of the Armed Forces stationed outside the continental United States.
  • Grants such an individual limited immunity with respect to the acquisition, possession, transportation, or alteration of such firearm before or concurrent with such registration.
  • Extends such immunity to a veteran who attempts to register a qualifying firearm outside of the amnesty period if the veteran surrenders the firearm within 30 days after being notified of potential criminal liability for continued possession.
  • Transfers each firearm qualifying as a curio or relic which has been forfeited to the United States to the first qualified museum that requests it
  • Publishes information identifying each such firearm which is available to be transferred to a museum.
  • Makes a prohibition against transfer or possession of a machine-gun inapplicable to museums.
