According to the Video and its poster on Youtube, this video shows the Senate vote concerning the Hughes Amendment of the Firearms Owners Protection
Act of 1986. The video claims the amendment never passed the House, yet Hughes was included in the Senate version after objections noted. The Hughes
amendment was the portion of the Bill, banning machine guns for civilian ownership if they were manufactured after 1986. The Hughes ban appeared in
the final version of the bill, and was signed by Ronald Reagan. The video claims that the restriction is in fact illegal.

I personally am skeptical as this is 24 years old, and likely would have been subject to legal challenge in the interim. Thoughts?
PS I can't seem to get the video to embed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
