FWIW, the National Firearms Act, which regulated automatic weapons, short barrel shotguns and rifles, and silencers, dates to 1934. The Federal Firearms Act, which regulates ordinary firearms and established the whole Federal gun control system, with licensing for dealers, etc., was signed into law by FDR on 30 June 1938. The two were modified and combined into the Gun Contol Act of 1968. The ban on removing or altering serial numbers on ordinary gun was/is in the FFA.
