I'll tell you what, a long gun registry ain't for YOUR safety. It's basically the precursor to confiscation, and so the government can keep an "eye" on you. I understand what you mean, but it doesn't work like that. I'm amazed that your countrymen were able to move back towards the right track by repealing this registry.

As for your coffee, I'd switch to a "different blend" if you know what I mean.

While I don't agree with him TH is entitled to his opinion.

Maybe if your guns got stolen they'd be easier to track down if they're registered, or potentially if a gun is found at a scene you could prove that it is not your by virtue of your being accounted for in a federal database...

Frankly, I'm still glad that it's gone. I think the registry does more harm than good - but it's all in how it is used. It COULD be used for good things, it's just that it susually used for the wrong reasons - and ends. And yes the mag restrictions need to go.

Personal responsibility; You keep a record of your own guns and serial numbers. Why the Hell would anyone want the Government to do that for them?

We do "gun traces" through ATF all the time. The gun "found at the scene" is traced from the manufacturer to the wholesaler to the dealer to the original purchaser. That person is tracked down and an explanation is sought for the gun.
