    Is something I would support that goes beyond gun control.  

    In the area of background checks for gun buyers, my idea would be to build a database that can be used to produce a whitelist of people who are permitted to buy guns, rather than cobbling together from different sources a list of people who are not permitted to buy guns.  And my first instinct is to think about how this database can be used for other purposes.  In practice, I think this means putting together a database that lists every citizen and legal resident of this nation, so you can see where this might go.
