SKIN IN THE GAME: A reader emails: “Your post about Missouri secretly sharing CCW info highlights a core problem with restrictions on what government can and can’t do. As the background check proposals in Congress would at least theoretically make it possible to create gun registration, we don’t simply need a law prohibiting doing so; Republicans should propose an amendment that makes creation or assistance in the creation of such a registry a felony under federal law, with mandatory prison time and loss of sovereign immunity. If all the Democrats want is background checks, surely they wouldn’t object.”

Yes, there should be criminal liability, and also civil liability, with each affected person entitled to recover minimum damages of, say, $10,000 plus attorney’s fees and with sovereign immunity waived.
