    ...or I was insufficiently clear.

    I agree with you that background checks for bulk gunpowder purchases would be a Good Thing.

    We seem to agree that mandating the use of taggants in gunpowder manufacturing would be a Good Thing.

    I merely suggest that the two should be pursued as separate goals at the political level.  We've just seen that political opposition to expanded background checks is very strong, so why effectively doom/delay any attempt to mandate taggants by tying it to something that has already been shown difficult?

    Pursue both - just don't tie them together in one package.
