      Gun owners can choose.

      But the privacy intrusion legal machinery - DHS, etc. - is long since in place.

      But... if you're content knowing that only government has that info...

        There is a large subset of the gun owning population that were OK with background checks and FFL transfers and permitting in some cases, but having their names published in databases was not part of the deal at the time.

        What behavior do you think this will drive?

          Gun control, and more rigorous versions of it, become more, more and more likely.

          We're not the ones causing you grief, DoLooper.

          It's other gun owners who can't handle their metaphorical liquor.

          •  Exactly! (0+ / 0-)

            It's not those that don't want guns around that are causing the problems. It's the ones that do want them around and use them to hurt others.
