To answer your question, because I have a right to my privacy. If some person came up to you and just asked what the size of your member is, would you just go and blurt out a reply to them, this person who you've never known? If not, then why would you do the same, but instead for the size of your genitalia, for your weapon that is in question?
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
What I was trying to ask is, what business of any other person, even government, is it to really know, or inquire, or search, anything about you, your person, or your possessions?
Also, the ballistic fingerprint thing can work both ways. If you do something to piss off a policeman, or someone of significant power, and they have access to such records, could they not frame you? Don't act like government is an innocent child, they've been caught numerous times committing acts such as espionage on the opposition, assassinating the citizenry, selling firearms to international crime organizations, etc.
