A requirement that can't be enforced is almost as good as no requirement at all. Same with the BP issue -- anyone can buy it, and unless the ATF follows you around 24/7 looking over your shoulder, they can't really do anything about it if you use it for ejection charges.
So, where are all those motors coming from that are being flown at the launches in Joel's area? Choose one of the following: A) illegally stored, or B) noone will help Joel. ;)
Also, some people take these individual statements and unknowingly apply them to some the U.S. as a whole. People are buying and flying without a problem, finding legal ways to work around the LEUP and storage requirements.
Not according to the ATF itself. So now when they actually SAY it's fine AND the LAW says its fine, YOU ALONE get to reverse that and post it publicly?
Gee I wonder why your club(s) are shrinking precipitously?
It is not "unenforceable". It IS THE LAW that propellant is EXEMPT from the explosives regs.
But you have some contrived rationalization why your erroneous position is right. I cannot fix you, but you can and DO damage people's willingness to simply follow the law and fly some rockets for fun as the law intended to begin with.
That's the only 2 you could come up with? I've come to expect more of you. Here's one, the magazine owner has allowed those with motors already stored to store until used, but is accepting no further.
The only M launches at our 2 day GHS launch were Hypertek.
Many fliers have gone the EX route.
Some might take your statements and think they can apply anywhere. Then they start finding minimum distance regulations at the city level that don't allow placement of magazines on owned or rental property. Now to place a magazine they have to find a location on the outskirts, insure it, and drive over frequently to inspect for theif.
There is a legal way to work around the LEUP problem,.. EX.
Not true. You can buy it from a gun dealer as long as you're planning to use it in antique guns. No LEUP required. In fact, most BP is sold this way. It usually takes a great deal of discussion to get a dealer to accept an LEUP for BP purchases when they aren't used to doing business that way.
And the other powders used in ammo don't require an LEUp regardless of what you use them for...
