True - Thank you Republicans - We can thank Ronald Reagan for signing this one into law.

The ban was attached to the 1986 gun owners protection act that made critical reforms to the 1968 gun control act. The ban was put placed in the bill by parliamentary trickery done by the Democrats that controlled the house, particularly Charlie Rangel, as I recall. Placing blame for the ban with Republicans and Ronald Reagan would be the same as giving credit for the national guns in parks reform to the Democrats and Barack Obama.

Did RR sign it into law or did he not?
