Well, the Sullivan Act which was pretty much straightfoward racism, passed in 1911.

And the NFA passed in 1934, which was both a balant gun grab, originally seeking pistols in addition to machine guns, and a ploy by FDR to keep a bunch of out work Revenue Men employed after the repeal of Prohibition. If only John Lee Pettimore had been more succesful....
