I was curious why the 1934 NFA didn't have a sunset?

It wasn't written that way. It was a knee-jerk response to the use of automatic weapons by criminals during prohibition. The same deal with the gun control act of 1968. It was a (delayed) kneejerk reaction to the fact that the rifle Lee Harvey Oswald supposedly used was ordered through the mail... Scott

ALL laws should have a sunset timeframe. If the laws are needed again after expiration, re-pass the law. I'm still waiting for the TAXES to sunset.
