16. I didn't say "all firearms". But the NFA is most definitely a national gun registry.

If you own a machine gun and you want to sell it to your buddy down the street, you need to report that sale to the Federal Government. Even though it's an intra-state transaction between two private citizens.

Just pointing out that there are no constitutional problems with national gun registries or background check requirements. There is ample precedent. Sure, politically, a national registry covering all guns, or even all semi-automatic guns, or all handguns, is not feasible at this time, but that has nothing to do with the constitution.
