      I'm not so sure there is a strong, direct relationship between 
whether a person with flight restrictions imposed by law is necessarily 
a more  dangerous person with respect to firearms ownership or usage.  I 
do think that the national information connection that can be more 
easily created through a no-fly list facilitated by the airline industry 
has been selected as an available crutch in the absence of a more 
appropriate information source.

      An alternative registration system with a national scope could be 
accomplished through a federal reporting system, perhaps as an adjunct 
to the Treasury Department's Revenue Service.  Some weapons owners aver 
that their security is increased via firearms.  By expanding the 
security concept to inclusion of financial security bases, and 
considering that, as with automotive vehicle usage, firearm usage has 
demonstrated a non-trivial loss of human lives, so increased security 
opportunities do infer the desirability of a national firearm 
registration and transference procedure could have some value.

      Another benefit of a federal government based registration system 
is that citizens likely could have more input and impact on how such a 
system would be administered, as opposed to privately based registration 
systems, which could be more restrictive, and, considering profit 
motives, more expensive throughout the firearms information economy.
