Drugs, artillery emplacements, napalm, prostitution - sometimes it seems like the best (http://www.cracked.com/article_17016_7-items-you-wont-believe-are-actually-legal.html#) things in life are illegal. For some reason, the fascists who control this country don't believe in your God given right to smoke meth and man a 155-millimeter Howitzer.
Luckily for us, there are a lot of awesome things out there that Uncle Sam amazingly hasn't taken away from us yet. Read this article, and then go and pick up one of everything while you still can!

Flamethrowers


http://cdn-www.cracked.com/articleimages/dan/legalities/flamethrower.jpg

Holy Shit, Really?
Yes. There are currently no federal laws governing or restricting the ownership of flame-throwing devices. Some states have laws restricting possession of flamethrowers, with violations only considered to be misdemeanors, but 40 states have absolutely no laws whatsoever concerning flamethrowers. Only in America would a device capable of launching rivers of fire at people be less regulated than marijuana (http://www.cracked.com/article_17016_7-items-you-wont-believe-are-actually-legal.html#).

http://cdn-www.cracked.com/articleimages/dan/legalities/flamethrower2.jpg
Careful with that pot, it looks dangerous.

Where Can I Get One?
You can sometimes find professionally made flamethrowers being sold by private buyers online (http://www.cracked.com/article_17016_7-items-you-wont-believe-are-actually-legal.html#), some for as little as $300. Also, if you're unsure on how to use your new device, but you want the source of your advice to be batshit insane, you could pick up Ragnar Benson's delightful read, Breath Of The Dragon: Homebuilt Flamethrowers, which we can only hope comes with a cellphone with the numbers 9 and 1 already dialed.
What Should I Do With it?
Actually using your flamethrower is somewhat more difficult than acquiring it. It seems that lawmen these days have rules about when and where you're allowed to shoot gallons of flaming fuel. We recommend making friends with someone who owns a few acres of land out in the country and then going hog wild. If you accidentally start (http://www.cracked.com/article_17016_7-items-you-wont-believe-are-actually-legal.html#) a wildfire, don't fret: Flamethrowers are just as good at stopping fires as they are at starting them. Just burn everything around the fire to cinders, and it won't have anywhere to spread!

Improvised Weaponry


http://cdn-www.cracked.com/articleimages/dan/legalities/weaponry.jpg
Holy Shit, Really?
Homemade firearms. They are also known as garage guns, Chechnyan Firecrackers and scrap weapons. Most garage guns are made out of easily acquired pieces of trash and industrial debris. They can be as simple as a lead tube with a rubber-band-powered firing pin, or a fully automatic pistol made out of aluminum cans and assorted sprockets.

http://cdn-www.cracked.com/articleimages/dan/legalities/weaponry2.jpg
Garage guns vary in quality from relatively good...
http://cdn-www.cracked.com/articleimages/dan/legalities/weaponry3.jpg
... to plastic deathtraps.
Where Can I Get One?
You can make one. Improvised firearms are legal under federal law, as long as the weapon does not violate any existing gun laws. You can even make silencers and sawed-off homemade shotguns if you get the proper tax stamps. There are a variety of guides for building home-made guns available for free online. Chechnyan rebels are the most prolific creators (and users) of these guides.
What Should I Do With Them?
The same things you would do with any other gun: load it with tracer rounds and blow up cars covered in tannerite. Of course, since you'll be shooting a DIY contraption made of scrap metal and prayers, both accuracy and safety will be far below acceptable standards. We recommend getting a gullible friend (perhaps the same person whose land you're using) to fire the first few shots. If it explodes, you might need to go back to the drawing board.

http://cdn-www.cracked.com/articleimages/dan/legalities/weaponry4.jpg
We made this!
Holy Balls, Why is this Legal?
First of all, because a gun with an unrifled barrel is only accurate to a few inches. Since most professionally manufactured firearms are legal in the USA, banning homemade ones doesn't make much sense. Neither China, the gun-control capital of the world, nor Russia have been able to stop their dissident populations (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122394012224530655.html) from building their own firearms (http://www.englishrussia.com/?p=965). Since you can literally build a gun out of the contents of a trash bin, any laws made to stop self-made firearms would be almost unenforceable

The whole 'Cotton is my boyfriend' act. Honestly, if you have to make up a hot girlfriend to try to impress a bunch of people on an internet chatboard, your life must be truly sad and pathetic. It isn't like this wasn't obvious all along, but until you decided to move down here, I didn't bother with it. Now someone figured out whose picture you've been using, so the gig is truly up. Next time, don't pick a supermodel with a very distinguishing mark. It just makes you look totally pathetic.

Cotton is my boyfriend, it's not an act I have never said any such thing about my avatar I have been forthcoming from the get-go.

It was talked about in the handsome men thread and the chit chat thread both places we talked about my avatatr and in Bill Cosbys MILF thread I posted pics.

You are falsely accusing me of things I have not done at all Sir.

I really don't even understand the animosity.

Tannerite (An Explosive Compound)


http://cdn-www.cracked.com/articleimages/dan/legalities/tannerite.jpg
Holy Shit, Really?
Tannerite is sold legally as a binary compound, meaning you mix two harmless powders and get something that goes boom. Just apply the mixture to the object you wish to blow up and then hit it with extreme force or heat.
Where Can I Get Some?
You can buy tannerite straight from the distributor. Premade shaped charges can be bought, or you can just get huge containers of the powders. We recommend only purchasing small amounts, as the temptation to blow it all up at once rises exponentially the more you have.

http://cdn-www.cracked.com/articleimages/dan/legalities/tannerite2.jpg
This man (http://www.kare11.com/news/news_article.aspx?storyid=492577) purchased 100 pounds of the stuff and was unable to resist the temptation. The blast was heard for miles, and sent scraps of shrapnel flying almost a quarter of a mile.
What Should I do With it?
Find an old car at a junkyard or ex-girlfriend's house. Drive it out to the same remote place where you use your flamethrower. Now, coat the car with tannerite, stand very far back and shoot it with a rifle. The results should look something like this:

http://cdn-www.cracked.com/articleimages/dan/legalities/tannerite3.jpg
Note to Women: this is pretty much what having sex with a Cracked writer is like, but for hours.
Congratulations! You are now having the most fun a citizen of the United States is legally allowed to have. Now lock the guns and explosives up and smoke some salvia to celebrate.
Holy Balls, Why is This Legal?
Like flamethrowers, tannerite actually has quite a few legal uses, including avalanche control (http://www.tannerite.com/she_avalanche.html). Despite being both legally available and explosive, no deaths have ever been linked to the compound. Due to its binary nature, tannerite is perfectly safe to store and transport. Statistically, a suburban swimming pool (http://www.lifesaving.com/issues/articles/13swimming_pool_drownings.html) is much more likely to end human lives.

I often wondered why all weapons aren't legal in America. If The Constitution says that we have the right to bear arms that's unconnected to the service in a militia than why does the government control those rights?

If we have the right to own hand guns than why not machine gun? Why not howitzers? Why not anti-aircraft guns? Why not nuclear weapons?

that's been my take on the 2nd, arms is arms. Bio-nuclear landmines. perfectly ok. If I am to trust that you won't shoot me with your AR-15, you should trust me that I won't blow your house off the map.
