Fear not, any solutions will involve dozens if not hundreds of patents. They
can pull this off for only a few thousand dollars per person. And if you
want to query the database, it will cost no more then something like a
credit check does now i.e. lots.

Of course, it does nothing to address or help the problem of terrorism.
