Who are you quoting when you write "...they also want to keep records of every brand/model firearm owned by everyone". I too would not agree to a national database of properly owned firearms by people who are not prohibited from owning them. I don't support lists that can give rise to the fear that the government is coming to take away your legally owned firearm.

I do however support background checks that show that when; if you are not on a "prohibited from owning firearms" list, and are transferring a weapon that is not on a stolen or "wanted" list; you can make those transfers within the mandated waiting periods without permanent records.
