Stop and think about it. They've already said that this wasn't C4. It
wasn't from a military source. The two explosions were very different
explosives. My guess is that one was an explosive from a black powder
subsitute and the other was a standard reloading powder.

After Oklahoma City, Ammonium Nitrate gradually began to disappear.
Even commercial growers don't use it much even though it is more effective
than Urea Nitrogen. Now you can't even buy Freezer Packs that contain it.
Stores don't want to deal with the surveillance issues.
Sodium Nitrate also has disappeared.

When it "suddenly" turns out that these bombs were made with reloading
supplies, it will become very difficult to get gunpowder.

This is another way to limit ammunition.

hrmm..

Well, they'll be after salt peter and icing sugar next.

We used to make bombs with that as kids.

And they weren't little pops either. So, yeah I think it'd be a pointless exercise trying to ban black powder.

So pointless that I very much doubt I'll hear anything about it apart from on ATS.

No they won't ban it, but they will make you register and limit quantities to the point
it'll hardly be worth the trouble.

Hopefully this wasn't done with gunpowder or black powder, that would be ridiculous. I see no reason to ban guns that use black powder in them, my God. I've fired some of those in Boy Scouts, and they take a long time to load and set up.

As soon as I heard them say "black gun powder", it became all too clear.

Looks like a staged event to me.... the image link has what I beleive to be the same woman that was the principal of the sandy hook school. She is supposed to be dead... but I digress.

Using gunpowder would make sense as it is readily available and most people that shoot a lot do reload with it. Add that to the list of materials you can't possess and bam.... Its all over. Just imagine if you had a few thousand rounds of ammo.... its a lot of powder in all that ammo.... Just saying...

Agree: You will have to register (show ID and give ph #) when you buy it and the quantities will be limited. Kind of like buying cold medicine over the counter I presume.

So are pipe bombs...nothing new there (maybe they will restrict the sale of fireworks also).

Chasing down anything that's combustible is a exercise in futility right up there with passing a law to regulate thermodynamics.

Which inbred moron senator will propose regulations on exothermic reactions? And will this administration happily create a federal B.E.R. agency?

Will god make it on the FBI's most wanted list now that Bin Laden is fish food?

One of the reasons that pressure cookers were used would be to intensify the relative slow
explosion of gunpowder.

One of the explosions was quite different than the other generating significant smoke.

Affected? Yes. Blindsided? No. We totally see it coming. As it is, can't buy ammo, so what else is new.

What's new? You can't reload it either.

I used the word, blindsided because it had'n't entered the discussion. The attitude seemed to be its not about
guns, its about terrorism. Its not, it IS about guns.

~First, they (the ABC agencies) started buying up as much of the ammo supply on hand that they could. Shortages ensued. Some 2A supporters weren't too concerned because, heck, "we can make our own if we have to".

~Then the Aurora theater incident, the Oregon Mall incident, the Sikh Temple incident, the Sandy Hook Elementary School incident, and finally the Boston Marathon incident....all within about a year. So, we have an attack on Entertainment, Shopping/Commerce, Religious Institution, School/Education, and finally Sporting events. Pick your pet peeve. Surely, all these tragedies will get Gun Control bills passed. But, they didn't.

~Well, guess what now!? Have you heard this morning? The Boston bombers purchased fireworks in February and now there is a discussion ensuing in the media about how easy it is to extract dangerous powders from pyrotechnic kits and purchase black powder in gun shops.

If they can't take your guns away, they'll take the ammo. If that doesn't work, they will take your ability to load your own. 2A supporters, stay vigilant.
