One man's crazy assault-weapon hoarding neighbor, is another man's shooting enthusiast, millitary historical collector, or avid Hunter.
I fully support a list, and personal accountabillity for the guns you buy, including filing paperwork when you sell it on, and all the rest (if the system can be made to work that well).
I do not support that list being available to anyone outside duly appointed law enforcement and used strictly for law enforcement purposes, and with the same limits as we give say, terrorists, i..e proper count findings to look into more than is absolutely neccessary.
That's why you report the issue to the police and/or MH professionals. If your neighbor doesn't meet their criteria for action, so be it. But you seem to be opposed to the idea of reporting the matter at all. I disagree. As to the whole nonsense about MH lists, or lists published in newspapers, I've already addressed that.
