FOIA Request - What Gives?

I submitted an FOIA request to the BATF requesting the information on the previous owners of my NFA item. I received a reply today which states:
"Please be advised that since 1979, Federal law has prohibited ATF from expending funds to maintain a national registry of firearms, which includes lists of purchases and the firearms purchased by private individuals. Since ATF does not maintain a database of firearms purchasers or firearm-transaction information other than those associated with a law enforcement investigation, we are unable to provide the in formation requested."
Have others received such a letter from an FOIA request?
