It reminds me of the argument on CP a while back about forcing everyone to have a voter ID in order to catch the small percentage of voter fraud. To inconvenience (and catalogue) the majority in order to stop something in the minority isn't right.
It is if the consequences warrant it.

In person voter fraud is so rare, prosecutable cases only happen dozens of times a decade. Not exactly the stuff that demands vigorous federal reform.

That's world's different from gun violence, which is ridiculously high in American compared to all of our western neighbors.

I support this measure. The problem is that the ATF has been effectively limited to checking in on FFLs once every ten years.

My preference is that this would happen regularly and frequently.
