Was the Communist Party/Communist Marxist Socialist Political Parties ever illegal in the United States during the Cold War or has it always been legal to believe in Communism ?

If I'm not mistaken, the CPUSA was temorarily banned in 1919 due to the first Red Scare. Other than that, I think they were legal for the most part (excluding guerilla groups that sprung up in the 1960s), but heavily monitored by the government.
