Since in Canada estimates were that 70 percent of long gun owners refused to register their arms until the law was finally repealed as a massive expensive failure and since a recent poll of American gun owners showed that 65 percent said they would not register their firearms which is similar to the Canadians response - the evidence is fairly solid that that would be the case.
Edit to add: that would mean 65 million or more new criminals - good luck with that. Their passion anger at being made criminals would influence the views of some of their loved one's such as spouses, adult sons and daughters, friends, and other relatives and support for the law would drop. Gun owners are notorious for often being single issue voters unlike gun control advocates. Registration would impact millions more citizens than the 1994 ban did. That's a huge can of hurt to open.
On second thought - go for it.
