Kansas law prohibits knowingly selling, manufacturing, purchasing, possessing, or carrying any firearm designed to discharge or capable of discharging automatically more than once by a single function of the trigger, unless the person or entity is in compliance with the National Firearms Act.1 Note, however, that the National Firearms Act generally allows private citizens to register machine guns so long as the machine guns were manufactured prior to May 19, 1986. Kansas has no stricter regulations.
