WASHINGTON, D.C.In the wake of the deadly bombing attacks in Boston, U.S. Senator Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) today announced that he will reintroduce legislation he has proposed in a prior Congress to require that sales of explosive powder be subject to a background check. He will also file the legislation as an amendment to the gun violence prevention bill currently on the Senate floor.
Current law allows an individual to purchase as much as 50 pounds of explosive black powder without a background check, and also permits an individual to purchase unlimited amounts of dangerous smokeless powder and black powder substitute without a background check. Sen. Lautenbergs proposal would change that and require a background check for any purchase of these explosive powders. These powders can be used as the explosive material in assembling pipe bombs, used in the Columbine school shooting, and pressure cooker bombs, which may have been used in the recent Boston attack.

Why don’t they just do a background check on everyone then tattoo a code number on our arms?
Lautenberg undoubtedly intends to institute background checks for anyone wishing to eat beans, for fear of the explosive outgassing.
Except for members of congress, of course, who clearly eat beans every day - and without any background checks or permits.
Background checks to buy crockpots.
Background checks before you can run for congress and especially President
That’s OK....but just give any islamics the Guy Fouks treatment
Was black powder used in this bomb or is Lautenberg just tossing shit in the game.
I didn’t know he was still alive.
Given today’s results in the Senate, this is just pathetically sad .. perfectly in Demarxist character.
Well I screwed that one up. I should have said background checks for pressure cookers. I’m old...give me a break.
Let me guess, the latter.
Neither did he.
Background checks for powder?
Stevie Wonder could have seen this one coming.
Democrats are the enemies of freedom.
When do we split in two? I’m in Texas, so I know where I’ll land. If you’re in one of the freak states, might want to think about moving.
“Why dont they just do a background check on everyone then tattoo a code number on our arms?”
How 1939. Nah we’ll put Destron-Fearing chips in everyone.
” If youre in one of the freak states, might want to think about moving.”
If youre in one of the freak states, might want to think about fighting.
Tip: A blackpowder substitute can be made from Vitamin C and Potassium Nitrate.
Okay Lautenberg, you little rodent, I guess we will just have to get creative.
An anonymous poster said the bombing was a false flag to make an excuse to background check powder as a means of shutting down reloaders.
There were no assault rifles at Sandy Hoax, either. Did that stop them from trying to ban them?
