I don't put much stock into the UN just waltzing in and confiscating guns. This stuff never works like that. Everything is incremental.. The old boiling a frog analogy. Registration is the first step and then opens the door to all kinds of privacy horrors. Have kids? Own a gun? If it's registered you can bet on a visit to ensure "Safety". [/quote] Agreed...however I am skeptical of the frog analogy. Last evening while me and the family were around a large campfire, and tree frog leaped in front of me several times then, with pure grace and whispering, "Viva La France," jumped right in. Yeah...I know it has absolutely nothing to do with your post directly...it just stunned me about the frog and your comment reminded me of it. :tounge: Yes...registry, because it is all for the CHILDREN!

The record-keeping section in the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) encourages members to "maintain records of conventional arms covered under Article 2," which include battle tanks, armored combat vehicles, large-caliber artillery systems, warships and small arms and light weapons.
Further, those records should be kept for a minimum of 10 years, the treaty states -- which NRA leader Wayne LaPierre has referred to as "nothing more than gun registration by a different name."
Because the treaty's language is so broad, LaPierre has said that "manufacturers of civilian shotguns would have to comply with the same regulatory process as a manufacturer of military attack helicopters."
