    Not sure of the right forum for this (Handloading and Reloading?), but the mods can move it if they decide it fits elsewhere. TTAG is reporting that the "Explosive Materials Background Check Act" would severely restrict or limit access to powder for reloading:
    Is anybody else as alarmed about this as I am? Seems to me it bears watching, and at some point, pestering your Senate and House members to oppose it.

    Senate or House? Has it been submitted, or just blabbered about? Do you have a bill number or sponsor's name?

    Thank you. If you'll excuse me a moment, I'm gonna go wind up Ted Cruz.

    Done. Somebody level headed (Sam? Robert?) please let me know if I get tin-foil crazy, ok? But my worry is that Lautenberg isn't nutty- he's thinking ahead.

    I worry that in the wake of their failure to severely restrict gun ownership at a federal level, the antis are now laying the groundwork for UBCs on purchase of ammunition and NFA registry-style control over its manufacture (reloading).

    They can't grab the guns - so they're gonna try for the bullets.

    Lautenberg introduced a similar proposal in 2003 as part of his “Homeland Security Gun Safety Act of 2003.”

    This is likely a part of his last hurrah as he winds up his undistinguished US Senate career. Expect his staff to dust off lots of other dumb ideas he's had over the years.

    Wrote my reps. Everyone else should do the same, spread the word to your friends and at your local gunshop.

    If this were to pass, pretty soon it would be 'amended' to include a limit on the powder in the factory ammo as well (how much ammo you're allowed to own).
