Safe Explosives Act... You're Thoughts?

Just recieved a paper from the ATF&E. A paragraph goes like this..."Beginning May 24, 2003, all persons receiving explosive materials must have a Federal explosives license or permit. Thus, you may no longer distribute explosive materials to non-licensees or non-permittees after that date."
Does this ban the sale of Black Powder to individuals by a legal dealer in B-P?
Why does the ATF&E wait SIX YEARS to tell us these things?

You do not need a license to buy bp or even buy it online and have it shipped. You do have to pay a 20.00 hazmat fee per shipment to have it shipped.

From page 72 of the Review of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Implementation of the Safe Explosives Act. 1-2005-005

The ATF does not have the authority to regulate ammonium nitrate, binary explosives and black powder in quantities of less than 50 pounds
