Footnote to my prior post...

Before everyone thinks I'm turning alarmist and the world must be ending...

I said proposal. I don't think a national registry can pass legislative muster. Budget considerations and the likelihood of mass noncompliance will likely torpedo it.

That said, I DO believe that background checks on private sales have a good chance of passage; however, as I said in my earlier post, enforcement on pre-existing guns may be fundamentally weak. Glenn's comments about stings and undercover agents may summarize the extent of likely enforcement, along with your occasional big organized crime bust.
