President Obama has outlawed a key substance that goes in gunpowder, making the entire gunpowder industry come to a stand still, overnight!
There’s nothing “sexy” about ATF regulations pertaining to wetted nitrocellulose. This isn’t going to get any coverage in the media. Start talking to the average American about nitrocellulose and other chemical compounds and their eyes will start to glaze over.
The chemistry isn’t really all that important. This new regulation has ground the entire domestic ammunition manufacturing industry to a halt.
The ATF gave the industry no notice. No grace period. This came down overnight. The entire supply chain for this crucial gunpowder component is now non-compliant.
