they tried that here in Erie. it didnt go over well at all. its just a shopping list for criminals. the problem with NY is they passed the SAFE act which made all gun ownership records PUBLIC.
when the list goes public, gun owners should sue for privacy violations (if they can) and also the names of any elected officials on that list put on a bunch of billboards.
The SAFE act has already been used to rat out your neighbor and have his guns seized. I read about a case like this a while ago but don't know it's outcome. I believe the claims were frivolous but they grab the guns and you have to prove in court (you know how long that will take) that you are not a deranged serial killer.
