Gun-control advocates have long claimed that a comprehensive registry would be an effective safety tool. Their reasoning is straightforward: If a gun has been left at a crime scene, the registry will link the crime gun back to the criminal.

No, it will link the gun to the person it was stolen from.

Its settled science that a criminal who commits a robbery or murder with a gun would never break a law that required gun registration.

Registration hasnt worked in Pennsylvania or other places. During a 2001 lawsuit, the Pennsylvania State Police could not identify a specific crime that had been solved through the registration system from 1901 to 2001, though they did claim that it had assisted in a total of four cases but they could provide no details.

The proposed gun registry is not a "waste of money". To the backers of this proposal it is money well spent - on harassing law-abiding citizens who own firearms.
That is the true purpose of all such proposed laws.
The "public safety" justification is a cover lie used to distract opponents of the measure.
Complaining about the cost of gun-control laws is a dangerous concession to the Leftists. They are not concerned with cost. They want control. People who own weapons of any sort generally own attitudes that make them harder to control.
Liberals being liberals. It’s not their money so they don’t care.
Criminals would, of course, dutifully register their stolen guns.

There’s over one million CCW permits in Pennsylvania. Those would be low hanging fruit.

It’s not about safety, it’s about control and power by and for the elite.

But how are they going to confiscate guns without the registry?
