Bill Creates Grace Period for Vets to Register Machine Guns

 This is the original MP44/StG44 from WWII. It fired a 7.92x39mm., or 8x33 Kurz, round that was a smaller version of the German 8x57, or 8mm Mauser. The Kalashnikov, or AK-47, fires a 7.62x39 cartridge, which is a smaller version of the 7.62x54 Russian. Most people consider the StG44 the original assault rifle from which all others were fashioned, but it arrived too late in WWII to make a difference in the failed Nazi war machine.

What about Vietnam?  There are many AK47s here and quite a few were disassembled and put into various parts of stereo systems to be sent back.

Members of the House and Senate introcued a bill to give people the opportunity to register machine guns and assault rifles their grandpa brought back from either WWII or Korea.

Known as the Veterans Heritage Firearms Act, the bill would create a 180-day grace period for veterans and their family members to register firearms seized overseas before Oct. 31, 1968 without fear of prosecution.
