    Question Can anybody confirm or clear this up??

    I had a comment today from some folks here that are normally pretty reliable, but I want to check it out with you all..........

    The rumor is that our new President has the intent to require powder manufactuers to put some chemical compound in gunpowders that will give them a shelf life of only 6 months. This seems a bit far-fetched, but on the other hand, given who we are dealing with

    There is not much proof of a lot of things our new president supposedly said or did. Sounds like somebody with too much time on their hands made this one up.

    That is an old rumor that actually started with the Clinton Administration.

    I do not believe that the technology exists yet. There has been some experimentation with it in the past, but those efforts were mostly unsuccessful.When gun powder deteriorates it becomes unstable and unpredictable, thus, unsafe.

    No company is willing to market gunpowder that becomes unsafe with its name on it...too many liability issues there.

    Make sense?

    Sounds like a lot of trouble, and many easier ways to accomplish the same anti-gun goals.

    I'm sure the military and LEA's would love that! I remember in the military starting rumors just to see how stretched out they could get. Unbelievable at how a story changes in a short time.

    Let me take a guess. They are in the business of selling guns, ammo, and reloading supplies?
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Not sure, I've been hearing this rumor for a long time. I think they just change up the first part of the rumor every once in a while.

    I think there was one bill to require this many years ago, but it didn't get anywhere.

    If true, I'm sure there would be an exemption for military and LE. Being more equal and all that.

    I think what that eventually evolved into was seeing if the powder manufacturers could incorporate chemical "id tags" into the powders. This way they could differentiate between individual lots of powder. They would then require ID to be shown and logged for all powder purchases. Theory being if someone used smokeless powder in a bomb they could create their list of suspects as soon as the chemical tags from the bomb residue are identified.
