The rational part of the argument is that registration has a higher probability of tracking down the culprit than no registration, and the examples would be guns and cars where there have been at least 1 case in which registration information helped.

Just because we don't really know the stats in advance regarding what percentage of incidents will be prevented (due to fear of being caught) and/or incidents identified doesn't mean that it's an irrational attempt to reduce the problem.
