    "But that investigation could be moving faster were it not for the successful lobbying efforts of the National Rifle Association. The NRA's efforts to guarantee that American mass murderers are the best-equipped mass murders in the world is not limited to murderers who use assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. The NRA is also in the business of helping bombers get away with their crimes. Gunpowder could be traced by investigators to a buyer at the point of sale if gunpowder contained a taggant, an element that would enable tracing of the purchase of gunpowder.


    Seriously guys? What are they gonna throw at us next?

    Wow, that's a leap.



    I suppose it's pressure cookers and backpack makers faults too for the bombing.

    Surely this isn't a surprise, though.

    When the President is up in front of the country blaming the NRA for his bad day, what do you expect his media outlets to do?

    There is so much wrong about this sentence that I want to take my degree in organic chemistry and bat the author around the head with it until the knowledge of how chemistry works enters his brain through osmosis.

    I had no idea the NRA was so evil. I'm so glad someone informed me. I'm going to need a while to contemplate all these epiphanies to decide if I want to continue to support them.... Ok, I've decided I will continue.

    Sorry pres. Gonna have to try harder.

    Wait until they "scientifically" link "hazardous gun emissions" with global warming.... And food shortages in Africa. I say this in jest but I wouldn't put it past them.

    Yes, the mostly state-run media.

    Most networks did little if any investigative journalism into F&F or the Benghazi attacks. If I missed it, would appreciate any info to the contrary.
    It is generally a media-wide hands-off policy, even After an election.

    So, for sure the explosions were gunpowder based?

    They were blackpowder based pipe bombs in the center of the pressure cooker surrounded by shrapnel. According to al queda, the pressure cooker lets the pressure build up to maximize the explosive force.

    Can one of you guys with some expertise on this subject clarify why the NRA opposed putting taggants in gunpowder? My search online shows that they said that it is expensive and wouldn't stop bombings anyway. It seems that there are quite a few European countries that have utilized this to solve several bombings though.

    Obviously they are desperate to throw the NRA under the bus for anything but I'm trying to get an understanding of why we oppose this.

    Perhaps we should look to ban high capacity pressure cookers?
    Just a thought.

    NRA Guilty ? ? ? ? ?

    Seems as though the "Lame Scream Media" performs the same functions for the Current ahhhhh "regime" that Pravda performs for The Kremlin.

    The taggants came up years ago, back in the early 90's I think. If I remember correctly it changes the properties of the powder somewhat. It could make loading a little more dangerous and would require entirely new load data to be developed.

    I'm working from memory here about stuff that happened 20 years ago so forgive me if I'm incorrect.

    Thanks jmr40. I found a similar explanation:

    over here:http://forums.handloads.com/archive/forum_posts.asp?TID=1213

    It makes sense but I am still looking for a reputable source to reference when this comes up for debate.

    NBC, MSNBC are owned by Comcast which is run by far left, Obama bundlers. PBS (funded partially by your tax dollars) ABC, CBS, CNN, AP, Reuters, Washpo, NYT, etc. All far left, statist, anti-gun propaganda outlets. Do not trust ANYTHING that comes from these "news" orgs.

    How much gunpowder does it take to detonate a bomb like the Boston Marathon devices? If gunpowder were "tagged" what would stop someone from getting commercially loaded ammo and removing the powder from it to use in one of these things. There are always ways to get around "well intended" laws like this. If society really wants to deal with gun violence -- or any kind of violence, including terrorism -- we need to return to a justice system based on lex talionis.

    A small capacity pressure cooker is fine if only one or two people come over for dinner. But what if 8-10 people come over? Are you really supposed to reload a smaller pressure cooker multiple times so everyone can eat?

    Then can have my pressure cooker when they pry it from my oven-mitted hands.

    Are we back to the taggant issue again??? The antis have been trying to use that one since the 1970s. It seems they always use the same old arguments and waste everyones time with their pablum.

    If we are going to ban pressure cookers we had better go after scissors as well. I hear there are people out there that run with them. Somebody's gonna get hurt. Gasp!

    And the people who intended to cook for 8-10 people are gonna have the high capacity pressure cookers anyway.

    I suppose we should all get ready for leftist backlashes stirred up by the hate mongering progressives.

    I do remember the 60's though I was a youngster, and I remember when the leftists burned the Bank of America down here.

    I knew soldiers who were spit on when they came home. And that skank Jane Fonda had a ranch right above all us little people living here in Santa Barbara.

    Liberals, you know, members of the party of "love and compassion" have a way of destroying things when they do not get their way.

    Well, I'm considerably older now, and have the feeling I won't stand for much of their tantrums and destruction anymore as the fate of this Great Nation lies in the balance.
