45. Other countries are uninteresting to this question.

UK/Australia don't have a 2nd Amendment.

I don't view a closed registry as a 'ban'. Individuals are still able to commercially produce and repair those weapons, it's simply unavailable for lawful sale to the public. Splitting hairs? Perhaps. But a registry can be reopened. Nothing was confiscated, the spigot of sales was simply disabled. (Pre-86 unregistered guns became non-compliant, and cannot be registered, and must be destroyed, and come with civil penalties. Same thing happened to gold in the 20's-40's.)


California is free to use a registry for that. They could also pull the form 4473's from FFL's and accomplish the same thing with a little more effort.
