The holy grail of the anti self defense and anti rights special interest groups is gun registration.

ALL short guns sold legally in the U.S. are already registered with the FBI and the LOCAL police and the STATE police where you live. That has been a fact of life since 1968.

Long guns? I don't own any.

A common misconception. It is simply not true. How do the local police, FBI, and the State police know about a pistol purchased from a stranger advertised in the local classified 5 years ago? They do not have that knowledge. That is why they wish to make private sales illegal.

All they have to do is apply the same restrictions to ‘long guns’ and you have nation gun registration. Why an 18” barrel restriction for shotguns? All they have to do is make it 42”.
