How are you not seeing this? Making a law that affects EVERYONE will only truly affect those that would follow it.
you think you aren't going to get investigated should your REGISTERED car get stolen and run over a bunch of people or used in a getaway and then abandoned?

if your gun is stolen, you have failed as a responsible gun owner. it is your absolute duty as a responsible gun owner to report a gun as stolen.
