I see your point. Not sure, though. Something that seems out of proportion...I work in a government building. Nothing about my job is remotely secret or classified, nor is anything that goes on here. but I had to go through three months of checks to get my badge, including my neighbors and wife being interviewed, all my former employers, all my travel for the past 10 years being scrutinized. And then after all that I had a one hour sit don't examination by a screener who asked me all kinds of very personal questions. All so I could be allowed to walk into a building.
Conversely, I can walk into a gun show tomorrow and walk out with a dozen semi-automatic rifles and four dozen high capacity magazines in a few minutes. They might or might not ask me my name. On some level doesn't that seem whack?
