I'm sure if this happened in a place like the US or Australia where they have strict explosive handling laws, he probably would as I dont think he'd be allowed to just keep them in his house. They'd have to be kept somewhere considered "safe".

But in China...I dunno, the law probably isn't as strict. So he probably won't.

Actually the law is strict... there has been a crackdown on safety, just hard to enforce it with such a huge population
