    No reason that tax payers should subsidize some people's hobby.

    Registration should also be checked. I'd like to see that gun owners have to take all their guns to the police station once a year, and if a gun that you owned last year isn't there this year, you either bring the relevant paperwork or prepare for a vacation in Club Fed.

    Repeal the 2nd amendment.

      ... but I am keeping costs removed from the establishment of the regulations because the issue of cost is something the NRA and gun manufacturers love to use as arguments against all regulatory efforts and it resonates with gun owners.

      If it is easy, fair, and doesn't take money out of their pocket, they really have no reason but to go along with it (unless they are a greedy/crazy/stupid person of course, but we'd be targeting them anyhow).
