LOL @ "explosive" adjective used to make the bill sound more legit.

Senate Dems eye background checks for explosive powder - The Maddow Blog

ETA: Mad Cow Disease blog link was used to pre-empt rebutes saying it's from a crackpot site.

I knew it was only a matter of time. Liberals simply can't contain themselves when it comes banning anything a white conservative might be interested in. It's in their DNA.

Where in the article does it say anything about banning gunpowder?

The NICS delay on purchasing gunpowder would overwhelm the system. Current delays even hedged with private f2f transactions recently have been 7-10 days instead of 15 minutes. Government is often obtuse (intentionally or not) about the consequences of feel-good legislation.

They're going after reloaders.

There's been discussion about this on a shooters' forum I'm on. Lots of guys into reloading there, of course, and they've all known it was going to be coming. I'm ashamed that it's originating with my senator, though. I can't stand the guy (Reid), but historically he's been somewhat reasonable on gun issues, for a Democrat.

The Constitution states we are to have powder and ball at all times, ready at a moments notice.

Go pound more sand Mr. "deadman walking" Reid

That is a logical extension of background checks for firearms. If it could, which I doubt, make obtaining explosives by would be bombers more difficult I have no real objection. I also do not have as much objection to background checks as I do to the 1934 Federal Firearms Act restrictions and taxation on some types of guns. I believe our duty to be part of a Militia requires civilians to own military personal weapons.

I would strongly support background checks if an individual could review the database to see if their name was improperly included and had a way to have their name removed is in error. I also do not see removing the fundamental right to own a firearm for a non-violent crime such as drug possession.

Yes, I would like to keep firearms away, or at least make it far more difficult, from violent felons or proven (?) crazy people to buy one on the open market. Background checks would do that for many but not for all. It would mostly restrict the mentally dangerous but not have any significant restriction on criminals obtaining or using guns. That will simply never happen.

If the Tea Party in that state hadn't put up such a POS candidate to run against him he would have been out.
