Should someone on a no fly-no buy list also be restricted from working in sensitive professions?

By sensitive, I mean a job that requires them to carry a gun or be in control of large amounts of hazardous materials or be in charge of passenger safety on planes, etc.?

I have no direct experience but it's my understanding a background check is required to obtain a hazmat endorsement for a drivers license and I can't imagine the value of forbidding someone from buying weapons if their job requires them to carry a gun.

5. One of the most dangerous parts of the slippery slope, giving corporate security access

so they can run background checks at times hiring and promotion.

And you know they aren't going to maintain the database because the states that submit data aren't gonna want to pay for someone to do it.

4. Agreed, but if we come back from that and so-and-so is not entitled to fly on an airplane does

it make sense to allow them to fly an airplane or have access to the cargo hold?
