    Was dynamite available to the general public or was it banned.

    Today I'm not sure but I think private individuals are banned from owning dynamite.
    Private individuals are not banned from owning dynamite ..nor are they banned from owning fully functional BAR or Thompson Sub machine guns. In fact, a good friend of mine owns one. (Thompson).

    Private individuals had a hard time buying a BAR or a Thompson 100 years ago.

    Could they but dynamite ?

    that is because those two weapons were not on the market then for private citizens. both were invented at the very end of the first World War and few BARs were even available with civilian sales not really appearing until the 1924 model was released. Since the Thompson was not actually on the market until 1921, no one could buy one 100 years ago.

    but your bigger point was a fail. Nice try at trying to cover up not understanding the supply of those two weapons
