Federal Laws

Federal firearm laws in the United States are complex. They can be described as a set of regulations that govern the manufacture, sale, possession, and use of firearms across the country. They regulate the possession and transfer of guns and suppressors, among other things. US Federal Gun laws include the prohibitions, background checks and licensing dealers. 

The federal firearm laws have become the subject of intense debate and controversy in recent years, with anti-rights advocates of gun control calling for stricter regulations, while opponents argue that such laws would have little effect and waste resources and attention from effective strategies to end violence.
