“universal registration is in the plans”
A government mandate that gun owners voluntarily register their firearms would be not only less onerous, but less successful then the attempts of states to get citizens to report internet purchases on their tax forms so that sales taxes are paid.
When government overreaches itself, it erodes respect for the law. As it is that `respect’ is already set on a pretty low bar.
