Paperwork to Get Spare Key from Dealership?

I know that the government is designed to protect those that can't protect themselves but this latest by Missouri is plain BS!
Went to the Honda Dealership that fixed my throttle cable several months ago to get a new key. The mechanic told me that I had to provide proof of ownership and a government issued ID card to get the key made by them! I asked for the service manager and he said the law came into effect 90 days ago. It is now a requirement for car and motorcycle dealerships to copy proof of ownership and ID to sell a key.
I took them the paperwork and got the key. Has anyone else run into something that ridiculous? You can work on my baby without proof of ownership but you can't cut me a key without it????? What gives?

Was that for a lost key or just a duplicate?
Here you have to show registration and the vin # plus ID if you have lost the key. As far as duplicates they just cut them when you have the key without having to show proof of anything. Unless that has changed here recently too.

Oh now I see it in the title. Spare key. I don't understand why they would want proof of ownership then. If you already have the key you most certainly can use it for the obvious. that's just goofy

Home Depot or Ace Hardware will duplicate the key.

In Michigan, just had some dupes made at Home Depot. Lowes did not carry the blanks, and our local Aco Hardware had the R version of the blank which does everything but unlock the forks (had to use a dremel to increase the groove length). But the point is - no requirement for the bs of paperwork.

But these were for dupes. To get a replacement where I didn't have the master - I would want the dealer to verify ownership before making the key. I'd hate to have some yahoo look at my vin #, go to the dealer and get a key, then the next thing I find is an empty spot where my bike or car used to be.
