Congress Going After Reloaders Now

Someone told me last week that this was the point of the Boston bombing.

“It defies common sense that anyone, even a terrorist, can walk into a store in America and buy explosive powders without a background check or any questions asked,” Lautenberg said Tuesday. “Requiring a background check for an explosives permit is a small price to pay to ensure the safety of our communities.

The FBI and CIA were alerted about the bombers, and did nothing. No doubt a fireworks store will be more thorough than the FBI and CIA.

Under current law, people can buy up to 50 pounds of explosive “black powder” with no background check, and can buy unlimited amounts of other explosive powders, such as “black powder substitute” and “smokeless powder.”

We will have to require background checks for all natural gas, gasoline and ammonia purchasers too. People who purchase CNG cars will be automatically listed as terrorists.
