Careful here. More bureaucracy is rarely the answer to a problem. More
transparency is a fine first step. Who sold what to whom would be good
to know now. Who supports whom would be good to know as well.

Regulating firearms has done little to stop the global weapons trade, in
fact it's just created a huge underground market that lacks
transparency. At least this is what those who monitor this sort of thing
tell me. 

This appears to be the same problem we have now with network
surveillance and control equipment.
