I don't disagree with this sentiment but when it is a "right to bear arms" then any change no matter how small will be argued as an infringement of rights even if it does not warrant such criticism.
Also what if responsible law-abiding citizens don't feel like they should jump through these hoops because of the irresponsible gun owners. As a result you might criminalize law abiding gun owners, I think most would want to avoid that. Overall the gun debate is a pretty muddy one and there are no easy answers especially considering how America's gun culture impacts it.
