I see no way it can be enforced without a registry.
My attitude is that such would be directly contrary to the 2nd amendment. From where would the federal government take the lawful power to impose such a restriction?

Those here at GT who have in the past argued in favor of the federal government's authority to impose such "reasonable restrictions", do you see now the slippery slope here?
