    I hunt fairly regularly and reload my own ammo. Saves me money, recycles a little brass, lets me reduce wear and tear on my ancient deer rifle ha. So long as firearms are legal, purchasing powder should be as well. You could ban the sale of powder and people could still buy ammo to get it. Could still buy fireworks to get flash powder, which is much more volatile than gun powder.

    I'm all for putting taggants in it and requiring a background check. Background checks on all gun and ammo sales for that matter, and a federal gun registry. Ban assault rifles and pistols while you're at it. It's too bad that in all of DC there might be a dozen politicians with the balls to even propose stuff like that.
