What's 'moral' about prohibiting the ownership of machine guns?

Nothing. But someone made a moral judgment.

Can someone point out the part of the Constitution that gives elected officials, bureaucratic experts, or Judges the authority to make "Moral Judgments"?

All laws are inherently moral judgments.

Nothing. But someone made a moral judgment.

If you agree there is "nothing" moral about prohibiting the ownership of machine guns, why are you claiming that someone made a 'moral' judgment?

Can't you admit such a judgment is 'immoral' in respect to our Constitution?
