"They express a classic right-wing paranoia that the government might one day use these records to confiscate the guns of law-abiding Americans. "
Ummmm yes we do.

This serial number should also be set into all the parts of the weapon so that no one can construct a firearm from bits and pieces with different numbers to confuse the identification process.
That way, there would be no need to ask the anti-registry private gun seller to do a thing. If his weapon is used to kill someone -- and the shooter was not in the records as owner -- the person who sold that gun (who didn't run a background check and discover that the buyer was a criminal or maniac bent on self destruction) in the database as the lawful owner. And charged with the crime.
Also, if anyone tries to remove or change the indelible or implanted ID, alarms will go off. The owner will face charges.
This idea probably needs some work. Let's think about it some.
:faint: Imagine the stamping and etching of all the parts that go into a 1911 or HK or AR-15. Computer chips and alarms built into our guns? :rofl:
