129. Purchasing an auto does not require registration..
.. only when I choose to take it out into the streets and I required to register it- much like carrying a gun in most states requires licensing.

I can buy ten cars today and have zero interaction with the state.

purchase them at a garage sale or from an ad in the paper

And exactly how many criminal guns are purchased this way now? 1.0% come from 'flea markets' and 0.7% come from 'gun shows'.

So.. this great big, expensive as hell, not likely to be complied with solution gets us what.. a reduction of 1.7% of crime guns? (Assuming of course that you don't just jiggle figures from one column to another- e.g. 'street / illegal source' goes up by that same 1.7%.

And in exchange you get a system ripe for abuse, with a demonstrated precedent.

Again.. no thanks.
