Permit/License – Automatic Weapons

Applications must be obtained from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The Police Division only assists by conducting a local investigation. Additionally, §18.2-295 of Code of Virginia, as amended, requires every machine gun in the Commonwealth to be registered with the Department of State Police within 24 hours after its acquisition.


Visit the Virginia State Police webpage for more information on registering your weapon.
