Before Congress said so, I don’t think guns were numbered. More unconstitutional infringement on my God-given rights.

That is what I thought too. That really old guns just had a makers stamp and a official stamp that the gun was safe so to say. But then again my dad had a long barrel military ww2 nazi 9mm Luger pistol with elevation sights on it because of it's long barrel and all the serial numbers match so he knew it was not a Frankenstein pistol put together from different guns.

The requirement that long guns must be serially numbered came in with the 1968 gun control act, passeed after the murder of former president John F. Kennedy and modelled after the German Weapons Law of March 18, 1938, drafted and passed by the then-ruling German National Socialist Party, usually known by as the Nazi Party, the shorthand abbreviation they were tagged with by their Communist adversaries.

Until the 1969 act became law, inexpensive shotguns and .22 rifles generally weren't serial numbered, though most handguns were. But the Democrats in congress in the 1960s wanted to know where even the kids' .22 rifles and single-shot rabbit guns were.

Just like the Nazis did.
