If only the hogs were harmed what's the big deal? An issue with "ethics"? I'm sure the hogs have no ethics when they kill livestock, pets, or even humans.
I am actually surprised I can go to Cabelas and buy this stuff, seeing as I don't think there is anywhere I can legally set it off here in Alberta. Does no one else see this stuff as a terrorist aid or plain old bad idea? They must monitor to some degree who is buying Tannerite and HOW MUCH.
Its no different than the ongoing sale at wholesale sports- buy an SKS for $299 and a case of 1400 rounds for $300. In my mind, these types of items should only be sold to competent people with good records may it be no criminal record, or 10-15years of citizenship. Just my thoughts though.
Government regulations and laws don't stop people who are 1, evil, 2 criminals, and 3 are planning to kill people.

Besides, Ammonium Nitrate is easy, McVeigh and Nichols couldn't make their own RDX which is necessary as an initiator which is why the FBI supplied them with two cases of C4 to initiate. Ammonium Nitrate is a slow, low RE explosive that needs a jump start via a more powerful initiator like RDX, PETN, etc.
I was one of the last few Sapper school graduates to have a handbook that still shows a lot of the improvised munitions stuff....after OKC, they revised even the combat engineer publications that are unclassified NOFORN.
You can still find some of the old TM's and FM's that show how to fix Nitrogen, Dust Initiator charges, FUGAS, improvised ammonium nitrate, TNT, etc....but they're hard to find.
The rest of your point is valid however. Where there's a will, there's a way. Having said that, even as a die hard libertarian, I don't think people should be able to walk in from a parking lot and buy enriched Uranium or Plutonium off a shelf with no credentials or licenses.

You need industrial blasting grade to make it worth the while and that stuff is harder to come by. The stuff you get at walmart is all ag grade.
But you're right, laws don't stop criminals.
And I got beat to the punch.
It is also note worthy that OKC was a ANNM bomb rather than plain ANFO. The nitro methane fuel makes for a bigger bang....

I totally get both sides of the argument. However, Tannerite is sold as an explosive, not a noise maker or party popper, an explosive. Why not just sell dynamite in 20lb or 60lb quantities. For someone like myself, there's no difference. If a recent immigrant for instance can walk into Cabelas and buy enough Tannerite to cause a massive explosion, the product should have restrictions!! Do you need to show a drivers license, fire arms licence, an ammunition acquisition license, or something to purchase the stuff?
Dynamite you just light it and run, and even that's not terribly hard to get.
I've never bought Tannerite so I don't know what's involved in the purxhase, on their website they say they only sell 1lb containers to civilians and the bigger 2lb containers to leo and other professionals.
