Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday introduced a bill that would require background checks to be run on anyone buying explosive powder, a reaction to last week's Boston Marathon bombing.
Reid introduced the bill, S. 792, for Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), who has been out sick for much of the year. But in a press statement, Lautenberg said the Boston bombing shows that background checks are needed for explosive materials.
"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.

Hey, I heard that a cheap case of 100 shotgun shells at Wal-mart has a lot of explosive powder in it...
You can find anything on the internet.
So I’m going to have to have an ATF permit to buy coffee mate?
Well, PC insanity is pretty deep. It has bden reported that Willams Sonoma has pulled pressure cookers from stores in Massachusetts "out of respect."
Backdoor gun control.
These fatherless maggots never stop pushing.
Link for that on post #41.

Pretty soon we will have to pass a background check to buy gasoline.
“How about this, lets deport all the Muslims that ate not citizens instead. Remove the problem!”
Clearly we need to deport those that are as well...
Harry, Let us address the fact that the Russians alerted our FBI and CIA to the motivations of the lead bomber first before we start limiting the freedoms of normal citizens. Your precious government failed to protect us due to a hypersensitivity to political correctness and people were maimed and killed as a result. Deal with the root of the problem before we engage in displacement behavior.
Not at Williams and Sonima anyway.
“Sigh; pretty soon there will be a background check to eliminate anyone with an IQ higher than room temperature and who might object to the liberals utopia.”
The first group to be purged in every communist/fascist takeover were always the “thinkers”. The soil must be sterile for the new utopia to grow...
With these asshats? Simple answer: “If it saves one child, then yes they would be required to do the checks.” Of course components can still be bought and mixed. Or do they think they can expand the checks to every possible component?
Details, details, details - Our gov't (and I now paint both parties with the same dung encrusted brush) doesn't worry about details. The objective is to seize every opportunity to criminalize behavior and make every citizen beholden to the state - period.
These morons DID NOT USE reloaders gunpowder, they used FIRERWORKS.
Just another Democrat assault on legal gun owners. And if you oppose it. YOU MUSS BE A RASSISS!, or a homophobe, or sumpin’. Just ask anybody in the mainstream media about this.
