The last (and only) amnesty was in 1968, not 1986. The law allows the Attorney General to declare an amnesty when he/she wishes, but none has been declared.

The reason for the amnesty in 1968 was that the law itself was changed to require registration of DEWAT's, which had not previously required registration. To prevent possible attempts to prosecute for actions which had not been illegal under the old law, an amnesty was made part of GCA '68.
