Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Dumbocrat) wants background checks when you buy firecrackers.
His bill, S. 792, would require background checks to be run an anyone buying explosive powder. It is Harry's attempt to prevent another Muslim terrorist bombing.
Buying explosive powder, you see, is exactly what Tamerlan Tsarnaev did. He bought one Giant Economy Size box, and got a second Giant Economy Size tossed in as a bonus.
So, if you plan a trip to Missouri's firecracker store for the 4th of July, be sure to bring along you FOID card. Firecracker Owners Identification Card.
If you reload ammunition, get ready for some more paperwork.
