    Why is Tannerite Legal?

    The guy in the video is someone local to me. This video is a year old. How many other substances that can easily be purchased could be used like this? This stuff is available at Cabela's and other outdoor stores. Seriously? Just $29.99 for a four pack.

    It is legal to own because the two substances alone are not explosive and thus ATF regulations allow it. They also fall under the same laws as black powder and are legal for personal use. But just like guns or even the car you drive, just because something is legal not all uses are legal.

    Flower pots are legal. Their intended use is to plant flowers and plants in them. But one could use a flower pot to smash someone over the head or use fragments to scrape up a car. That would be an illegal use of a legal item. Same goes for Tannerite.

    What Is Tannerite and Why Is It Legal?

    What does Tannerite have to do with it?

    Looks more to me like a Darwin rule situation.

    Can you imagine what Tannerite could be used to blow up? Didn't the Las Vegas shooter have some of it in his hotel room?

    "Stay 100 yds. or more from target to ensure safety."

    The exploding 4WD looked like a convincing car bomb with shrapnel. If I were in intelligence, I would want to know who was buying this in quantity.

    From what I'm reading, he use three pounds of tannerite, and was standing 25 yards from the target. Experts say that one should be 100 yards away for every pound used. So he should have been 300 yards away; not 25.

    This stuff is only legal due to a loophole in the law. If this stuff was one chemical it would be illegal but because you buy two chemicals and mix them, it's all good. I am surprised someone hasn't used this to take down a building or blow up a car. Yes, both were done on YouTube but not maliciously.
