So how well was DC's registration system working, anyway?

According to this article, there are about 36,000 registered guns unaccounted for in DC.  It's not clear whether the total includes rifles and shotguns or only handguns.  What IS clear is that the government did not believe their registration information to be of any use whatsoever in solving crimes; they have allowed it to degrade to the point of uselessness.  Is a registration system for lawfully-owned firearms a useful crime-solving technique?  Evidently not.
