      that's probably a non-starter, because that requires a registry.  However, you will now have the ability to trace crime guns to their point of exit out of the aftermarket.  More importantly, you'll have placed the same criminal and civil burden on gun owners as we have on FFLs; that's your preventive measure.  The only thing that costs you is the need to actually put in work to trace crime guns down a persistent and secure chain of custody.
