    take the no fly list. it's common sense that people on the no fly list shouldn't be able to have a gun. if you aren't safe enough to fly on a plane you aren't safe enough to have a gun. but the individual rights theory says you have to show, i believe, probable cause that they committed a crime or that they are dangerous.  why isn't a 'reasonable suspicion' standard enough?
