This fellow from SF can say anything he wants, does't mean it's going to happen. It's not the first time this has been brought up, certainly won't be the last. What will it accomplish? The conspiracy theorist will start screaming gun confiscation. The liberals will tell us they feel safer because they know where the guns are. The criminals will just laugh their asses off because their lives aren't changing a bit. On the practical side of gun registration, the state probably couldn't afford to foot the bill for it, and it's really not enough of a national political issue for the federal government to give it much more than lip service. good luck to us all

Agreed, but I am proposing that any retail sale through an FFE is as good as registration anyway.

Now do they know if you still own them, or if you own any purchased "off the grid?" Nope. Do you require & record data on a bill of sale when you transfer a gun privately? I do. Why? Because I see legitimate purchases I make from a gun dealer as an informal registration. If a weapon I sell or trade is ever used at a later date for criminal purposes, I want to be able to show I don't own it and to whom it was transferred.
This doesn't mean you still own the gun. Plus there is no central registration they would have to go through the records of every ffl to find out who bought the guns. Much more difficult for them to prove you have the gun than having a central registration.

Everyone has a fix for what ails us, Sheriff Happy feet has his ideas and they sound good if you say them fast enough. We have enough laws and rules to last 10 civilizations, enough of the new law already! Maybe we should all register our thoughts while were at it!

Phuck that stupid shat, prosecute the criminal based on the crime not the possibility...

I always get a kick out of law suggestions that are generated by those who dont abide by laws in the first place. There are laws against killing people - I dont think all the bad guys abide by these laws.

Now they want to put into effect laws that say "You must register your weapon so we know who has them". Im sure the lines will be long with gang members in front of me. Ill make sure I get in line early.

Chicago is a good example. No guns allowed yet they have the highest death rate with handguns in the country. Looks like the plan is working well.
