As a child, I remember watching the movie Red Dawn starring Patrick Swayze and C. Thomas Howell.
The thing that about that movie that really hit a chord with me was a scene when the Soviets had just landed and the commander told one of his lieutenants to go to the gun shops for they would have a list of all the guns owned by the people, thus making it easier for the Soviets to round them up.
Now, while a work of fiction, the concept is sound. If you make a list of everyone who has a gun, it’s easier for an oppressive authority to confiscate them when they don’t want you to have them.
