Like I said earlier you're fighting the wrong battle. Instead of making the ammo dealers in the other 49 states comply with the ridiculous FOID program, thereby increasing the cost of doing business to them too, use your efforts to shut down the wasteful and freedom infringing program in the one offending state.
Pretty much, yes. Gun owners have to register themselves with the state.
Actually, it's more than gun owners. Better hope the police don't find you in possession of so much as a single round of .22lr, all by its lonesome, if you haven't registered yourself with the state, whether or own a gun or not.
