1. We should have a nationwide database not by state. Private sales subject to the same restrictions as gun shops. Private owner who sells a weapon that is not registered to the new owner subject to responsibility if weapon is used in the commission of a crime. There should be a trail of every new gun purchased: ownership, registration, sale or status if stolen or destroyed.
2. There should be a limit on the number of weapons a private citizen may own.

(The odds are this would never happen due to privacy violation concerns.)
