The ATF knows every firearm's serial number and its movement from manufacturers to dealers and to the consumer. That is the basis of the trade. Making it a bit easier to compile a list won't change much. The list is already in existence.Article says ATF would have to photograph the 4473s so that the info could be captured and populated into this potential registry. So I think equally important for everyone to call their dealers and ask them to not let ATF photograph anything. To my knowledge there is no legal requirement to let them do that. And they probably accomplish it thru intimidation. No dealer should be letting ATF take pictures of anything unless a specific one tied to a gun found at a crime scene is being requested.
