Would black powder be as powerful?
That’s it dammit, we’re banning fireworks! We gotta get them out of the hands of the evil right wingers before they kill somebody! We’ll be bustin’ down your door next week! RAT TATATATATATAT!
Sounds like we need background checks to buy fireworks.
Frank Lautenberg already beat the bitch to it. He’s proposing a bill to require a background check for the purcahse of “explosive powders”.
You just knew this was coming.
Ban welfare now! These bastards were collecting welfare and undoubtedly used our tax money to buy the powder, pressure cookers and backpacks.
Yeah, I can see how this is gonna flush out. Modern smokeless powders are classified as ‘propellants’ while real black powder is an explosive. Because of that, those who sell it already have additional regulations as to how it is stored, etc.
Because of the regulations, many suppliers quit carrying it, and in many places it is hard to find original black powder.
The black powder substitutes do not work well with flintlocks.
There are also various household chemicals which are capable of powering a bomb. And no, I won’t list list them.
