  •  I don't have a problem with the background check (2+ / 0-)

    provision either, but I think this question bears asking:

    No one in any official or governmental capacity knows that I own it. No one asked me to pass a background check, get a license, or get insurance.  I keep it in a locked gun safe, with ammo stored in a separate lockbox. But I'm not required to. I just have to keep it away from easy access of children.
    Why in the hell should anyone in the govt have to know you have it?  What business is it of theirs?  Do you really want to be on a list for something and what good do you think would come of such a list?

    Most importantly, is there any reason that you can't do the responsible thing and keep it stored safely and properly without someone from the government looking over your shoulder?
