Universal gun registration: Does universal gun registration make sense in the United States?

  • Yes, I believe that universal gun registration makes sense in the United States.

    Yes, I believe that universal gun registration makes sense in the United States. Even though it would not completely get rid of gun related crimes, being able to track the origin of each and every gun would allow us to figure out where guns used in crimes came from. Even if a gun was stolen, knowing where it was stolen from would be a step in the direction of finding out who stole it.

  • Congress is Obligated to call for the Registration of all Firearms within the United States.

    Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, The Powers of Congress, "To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;". Also, "The reserve militia[3] are part of the unorganized militia defined by the Militia Act of 1903 as consisting of every able-bodied man of at least 17 and under 45 years of age who is not a member of the National Guard or Naval Militia." Wikipedia. By these, we see Congress has the duty and authority to oversee all militia, organized and unorganized, in the United States. When firearms are unregistered, Congress can not fully act on it's responsibility because it doesn't know where legal arms are cached for use in defense of the nation.

  • No, and here's why:

    Why would you want a gun to be registered? So you can track its owner. Why would you want to track the owner? Because they have committed a crime. Why have they committed a crime? Because they are a criminal. What happens if you are a criminal? You don't buy a gun from a store. What happens if the gun wasn't bought from a store? It isn't registered to them. Why isn't it registered to them? Because they got it illegally.

    And all this happens only if the gun is in possession of law enforcement. Why would this be the case? Because either the criminal was enough of an idiot to leave a gun behind (hint, guns are like gold for criminals.), or, they caught him with the gun. In which you don't need to track him down with a gun.

  • It's a waste of time and money

    Only law abiding citizens would register. If a convicted felon and/or criminal has obtained a gun illegally they are not going to tell anyone. They don't want the gun to be taken away from them which would happen if they registered and we found out their history and knew they weren't suppose to have a gun. Let's be realistic. This only hurts law abiding citizens not criminals and it doesn't help anyone.

  • Only Law abiding citizens would register.

    Do you think a felon who has a gun is going to register his weapon?
    If all felons do not register their guns, what is the purpose of gun registration? If judges would throw the book at felons who commit a crime with a gun, then you would really be doing some good.
    And taking guns away from people on anti-depressants. Most of your mass shootings were committed by people on these drugs.

  • I could not oppose it more.

    Registration precedes confiscation. Do you really think people like Dianne Feinstein will ever be content?

    And if Connecticut is any indicator, ~85% percent of gun owners would ignore registration on firearms already in our possession. Thereby creating tens of millions of felons and 250 million or so illegal firearms in the US.

  • No, Universal gun registration does not make sense in the United States.

    In my opinion, Universal gun registration does not make sense in the United States because it is not the gun that is dangerous it is the person behind the gun that can be dangerous. In order to make this country safer for its citizens we need to license and register the people.
