Nitrocellulose now a "high explosive "
More edicts from on high. They can't ban guns or ammo, so they find ways to make it harder on us.
The primary aspect of gunpowder, nitrocellulose, has been ruled a "high explosive" by Obama.

Not much of a change.
You can't have it on the same trailer as corrosives, poison gases, oxidizers, radioactive material, dangerous when wet, and some other haz mat.
What facilities in the USA would this affect other than General Dynamics St. Marks plant?
Sounds like it's on hold for now.
I'm sure that fucking idiot knows ALL ABOUT the actual chemistry in gunpowder, and is totally qualified to say what it is or isn't.
