    Speculation and unsupported opinion seems to be all the 'gun' rubbers have left in this discussion. According to the ATF review, Sales collapsed so it appears NO ONE bought 'tommy guns' once the tax came into effect....

    But have to ask, if modern deniers of increasing firearm regulation insist criminals will not obey the law then why do you think roaring 20's gangsters lined up to pay the tax and get fingerprinted???

    Seems a silly line of ahhhhh 'reason'...
    gangsters didn't buy the guns legally-rather the few that were used for murders usually were stolen or "diverted"from police or national guard armories

    So it was intended that a state had the right to ban guns within its borders ?

    No a town matter or city matter.

    I don't believe the founders ever could foresee a state doing something that stupid. And most states' constitutions prohibit such idiocy.

    nope, not at all. Local governments could prevent certain ways guns were used or carried

    But you admits the framers of the Constitution allowed it ?

    nope, not at all. Local governments could prevent certain ways guns were used or carried
    Could ?
    So when did it change ?

    A town or city would have the authority to declare what areas of that town or city can be gun free, but it is contained with the cities limits and a persons private property would be exempt from such laws and people also given the right to carry as they traveled from their private property out of town.

    Some Western movies show local law enforcement proclaiming guns have to be checked in at the Office while in town.

    But the Constitution doesn't say that.

    It says that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed.
