The extreme paranoia from the far right is jarring, y'all are as bad as the lunatics on the far left.

You can never ban homemade or over the counter items that will go bang, when i was a kid we would take empty soda cans, but a mixture of oxy/acet. gas in them, plug hole with window putty and shoot them with a 12 gauge, would make one heck of a boom, never heard of anyone outlawing a cutting torch set.

Going back to my original post, I am not in favor of any ban on tannerite. I am in favor of regulating and tracking purchasers.

If someone wants to buy it for entertainment purposes, then so be it. Give the store your name, show some ID and limit the quantity to less than 5 lbs. If they want more, wait 30 days or file for a "special permit" that dictates that a higher quantity is needed and what the purpose is.

This wont stop a determined person from doing harm, but hopefully a diligent police force could at least have some heads up that someone is acquiring mass quantities of this stuff and can check things out.

Hope that clarifies my take on this.

Okay, I gave you the befit of the doubt and looked up your website. Which took some effort as the link you provided is incorrect. I did find it after experimenting with w-w-w and h-t-t-p in the beginning. The correct website you provided is:


After reading "CraigWestly's" quote attributed to Adolph (spelled wrong) Hitler I stand firm in stating that the numerous sources I checked (There are many more that concur)are accurate and that your quote attributed to Hitler is False.

So, Redbird, I gave you the courtesy of checking your source, an internet forum, similar to craigslist,now I ask, that you read the sources I provided.

One last source for you, the Fordham Law Review, a trusted educational institution.

It is a dot EDU website, in case asterisks are inputted by the Post Journal.

I googled "weapons act of Nazi Germany 1935".

The number one web page that came up is ****: // en. wikipedia****/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Germany

There is no Weapons Act of 1935. There is however a Weapons act of 1938. No quote by Hitler is mentioned.

That would include the hundreds of thousands M-1 carbines (and commerical clones ie. Universal) & the M-1 Garands that have been sold to us by the U.S. government over the past 50 years.

the state defines an "assault rifle" as anything having a "military style."

any rifles that have pistol grips are now illegal. any rifles that are fitted for a bayonet are now illegal. any rifle with a folding stock is now illegal.

& in case anybody forgot i'd like you to google "housing collapse andrew cuomo HUD."

Ok, contrary to earlier reports, it looks like you WON'T have to modifiy magazines of less than ten, but more than seven. HOWEVER you it will be illegal to put more than seven rounds in them at any given time. If you damage or lose such a magazine you may not replace it with a magazine of more than seven rounds, and those aren't generally available , so you'll end up with a single shot. The 75 page legislation can be viewed at the appropriate article on the WGRZ-TV website. It appears that "assault weapons" will have to be sold to a dealer (for out of state sale only) or turned into the state whenever you decide that you don't want it any longer.

@Redbird, in what book is this quote attributed to Hitler? I will gladly check the facts if you provide your source.

It is not in Mein Kampf, of that I am certain as I have read that.

Here are the sources I used to check your Hitler Quote and found it to be false:



I will leave you with another quote I found while researching the facts:

"A quotation at the right moment is like bread to the famished." – Anonymous

Oh we go again....equating a proposed ban of high powered explosives to Hitler and Nazi Germany is a little extreme, isn't redbird? Extremism among both liberals and conservatives just makes me SMH...

You can never prevent criminals from getting guns and anyone who believes that we can is dreaming.

So, this 20 year-old went out with some friends with several pounds of tannerite and their weapons, or should I say toys? The mentality of so many people, sane or otherwise mentally impaired, is that guns are made to be played with. So when you mix stupidity with weapons and explosives you have the possibility of catastrophe. Now, this event was far from that, but what if we added alcohol to the mix? How about some anger? My point is that too many people regard weapons as toys and that breeds irresponsible behaviors. You may be able to limit the possession of weapons from known criminals and the certified mentally unstable, but you can never control stupidity. And, there's a whole lot of stupidity out there.....

How come no articles in today's p.j. about the new gun laws? Redbird is absolutely correct, take the guns then see what the government does.Legal homosexual marriage legal gambling time to leave this morally dysfunctional state!! Bands or regulations on anything constitutional.

@Redbird, Hitler never said that.

The closest thing Hitler ever said was, “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.”

That being said, I am ex-army, I own a gun, but regulating Ammonium Nitrate products just makes sense. It can be done in a way that is similar to how we track Pseudoephed sales at a pharmacy, it is just proactive policing.
