In a simply ridiculous piece of legislation, Senator Lautenberg has proposed a measure “to require the sales of explosive powder to be subject to a background check.”
It will inconvenience people who purchase gunpowder for lawful reasons and won’t in any way limit terrorists. Senator Lautenberg has no idea how or where the Boston terrorists got their explosives, and there is nothing logical in Lautenberg producing this legislation now, but it didn’t stop him.
What will he want a background check for next? Fertilizer? Alcohol? Muriatic acid? Sodium and Chlorine?
His legislation would require permits to make powder – another tax for the tax-happy Senator!
Lautenberg is 89! He really needs to give it up.
