It's a little of both.
The National firearms act requires registration and a $200 tax on any title 2 weapons. This would include fully automatic weapons, short barreled rifles and shotguns, silencers and so on.
The Gun Control Act of 1968 banned the importation of "non sporting" weapons. and tightened a number of other unconstitutional controls on firearm ownership.
The Firearm Owners' Protection Act of 86 banned the fed from accepting new registrations of automatic weapons for civilians.
What the Veterans' Heritage Firearms Act would do is allow veterans or their families to register any title 2 weapons they may have by means of an amnesty. They would be treated as if they had been in compliance all along.
Right now, if they're caught, they're prosecuted and their historical firearm is seized and most likely destroyed.

|Joe Dirt||As a vet I have mixed feelings. My grandfather brought home a WWII Nazi pistol that is still in the family. However, as a Police Officer I have been disapponted in the number of gangmembers that the military has allowed to serve to fill positions in time of war. A few months ago a friend who works for a different department than I do was ambushed by a gangmember -Marine who had smuggled home an AK47. As long as the bill would require background checks just like any other citizen has to pass I wouldn't have a problem with it. It's unfortunate that our military has chosen to let dirtbags join the service. It diminishes the service of the rest.|

Veterans' Heritage Firearms Act...
I'm not in the know about firearms, not something I'm terribly interested in, but I am interested in rights and veterans. This seems odd to me.
