A better idea is to make a list of the people supporting this bill and shoot them.

"The cost to enter names in the database will be covered by a fee paid by gun owners, which wasn't defined in the bill." That's pretty much the end point of this. If the government was actually concerned about safety the gun owners wouldn't be footing the bill. This is a money grab.

That's half of it, the other half is to raise the cost of owning a gun, thus decreasing the number of gun owners (especially among the poor).

From most studies I've read about the issue, the majority of firearms used in crime are either stolen or unregistered. So the people showing up on that list won't be the same as the ones committing the crimes.

Germany made a list of gun owners once, promising they would not do anything stupid with that list. Once the list was complete, they went door to door via that list and confiscated those guns. Guess what happened next.

Actually, this has been done before, and it just became a list of people to rob to get guns even if they're a felon
