They only said the Attorney General could not "consolidating or centralizing records of gun sales and gun ownership." It doesn't mean the NSA, DHS, ICE, or any other agency could not create the registry. The language also means if they de-centralize the database, it's not violating the letter of the law. States like California already have a registry. If all states have the registry and the AG has access to all of them, it's still not violating the law.
