I'm a gun owner. I'm not a hunter, but I enjoy things like skeet and target shooting. I feel no need to own a gun for personal defense, but then again, I live in an urban area with excellent police coverage. If I lived in the sticks where the nearest police protection was an hour away, I'd probably keep a handgun.
That said, how could any person, and any organization be against a law requiring you to report to police a lost or stolen gun once you became aware that your firearm was missing???
Here's NRA gink Jonathan Goldstein in the Pee-Gee: “Our members live under the threat of being charged every day,” he said. “And the threat of being charged for exercising a lawful right is too much to take. Imagine if you had to report to the government every time you lost papers related to a political speech.”
Please Mr. Goldstein, point me to an example where someone has been beaten to death with paper they lost.
UPDATE: The Post-Gazette removed Mr. Goldstein's comment regarding lost papers from the story. Probably because it makes Goldstein look like an idiot.
