Retail sales of Tannerite.

Authors: Senator James Merritt


Regulates the retail sale of Tannerite, a patented ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder based binary explosive used primarily as a target for firearms practice. Provides that a retailer: (1) must secure Tannerite behind a counter or in a locked display case so that Tannerite is unavailable to a customer without the assistance of the retailer or an employee of the retailer; (2) may not sell Tannerite to a customer who is less than 18 years of age; and (3) must verify the age of a customer who wishes to purchase Tannerite by requiring the customer to produce a valid government issued photographic identification card that shows the date of birth of the customer. Makes it a Class C infraction for a person to violate the law concerning the retail sale of Tannerite.
