In the US, you start by applying to the BATFE for an 01 Dealer Federal Firearms License. That means you ALSO need a premises that is zoned for business, secure storage for firearms, a business license, etc etc etc. You will also need your local Chief Law enforcement officer to sign off on your application, and the money to pay for the license ($200). Then you add the Special Occupational Tax (SOT) for being a Dealer in Class III firearms ($3000) See the link below for more information.

Without possessing a Federal Firearms License and corresponding tax stamps (either Class 3 S.O.T. for a dealer or Class 2 S.O.T. for a manufacturer), you need to be approved for a Class III NFA tax stamp for every automatic weapon you purchase. You would also be limited to automatic firearms manufactured and NFA tax stamped prior to the passage of the 1986 Firearm Owners Protection Act (or, for a fully imported automatic weapon, it would have to be manufactured, imported, and NFA tax stamped prior to the passage of the Gun Control Act of 1968).
