    I don't think I would like this sort of law anyways - as jumpwing said, it's a defacto gun registry. If you want to know who owns guns, just get the list of people who don't, then look at everyone else.

    I'd rather they just stay out of it entirely.

    Absolutely!

    They won't have to have all the individual guns registered, but....

    Won't be a big deal with me, as I very well "marked" already, between letters-to-the-editor, VCDL lobby day, the Freedom Rally pictures by DHS, Tea Parties, OC on VT campus, etc.

    However, this would likely be a slippery slope we should stay off of -- albeit I like the intent of the idea.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    Sounds great to me, now if only it was real
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria

    All good points on the "slippery slope" argument, but here is something to think about. If you have bought a firearm in say the last 10 years or so, from a FFL dealer and not an individual, the government already has knowledge of you owning that firearm. We can claim "lost" or "stolen" if it ever got to the point of manditory gun registration (which would only be accomplished with lots of casualties), but they would still know where to start.

    But hey, it makes for good debate.
