49. Difficult to say... I'll explain.
Edited on Fri Feb-05-10 01:22 PM by Glassunion
Your dealing with an abstract thought. But I will answer the questions you posed.

First question about making an explosive with normal household cleaners. No I should not be notified. You have a right in my eyes guaranteed by the 4th, to be secure in your personal effects. The why and what reason you have is none of my business, nor is it the business of the governments.

The second question was the abstract one. It is not based in reality. You ask me to acknowledge the fact that you committed a crime (taking dynamite from your business) then bringing it home and storing it in your shed (yet another criminal act) but then you ask me to ignore any laws that may be on the books against this sort of thing. Then ask me if I should be told that you did that. Since we are dealing in this abstract thought, I would still say no, that I have no right to know what you do at your residence.

Again you are criminalizing people who have done no wrong and mean no harm. This registration that you are asking for, I'll call it the list of undesirable persons list. As you have already expressed that you would not allow you children to play with mine, you have expressed that me and my children are undesirable.

Since you brought it up, would construction workers who need to use and handle explosives be on this list of undesirable persons?
Would the manufacturer's employees who produce the explosives be on this list of undesirable persons?
Would the employees of firearms companies be on this list of undesirables?
Would police officers who own guns be on this list of undesirables?
Would chemical company employees be deemed undesirable?
Would members of our military be on this list, they have access to some scary stuff?

So we agree to disagree. You want my name and address on a list. And much like the sex offender list you will keep you children away from me. Because even though I have not nor desire to commit a crime, you label me a criminal.
