Considering it would cost a lot more than 500 bucks to build a nuke anyway…

This law isn’t stupid.
“Detonating a nuclear device” INCLUDES but is NOT limited to a huge atom bomb.
You can easily build very, very small and harmless reactors with slightly radiating material. Making this small reactor detonate will not harm anyone but it’s still illegal.

@Neckon — you can’t make such a reactor detonate. For a nuclear device to detonate, you need a critical mass of material, which is typically quite a large amount. It’s actually extremely hard to make a nuclear detonation smaller than the 12kT blast that levelled Hiroshima. To my knowledge, the smallest ever achieved is in the region of 100T. This is about 1% of the power of the Hiroshima weapon. Chico is about a tenth the size of Hiroshima, so such a weapon would likely be able to destroy most of the city.

With luck, someone in the future will develop a personal nuclear weapon, and 100s of 1000s of americans will want to be 1st on the block to own one. of all the people in the world, americans are most likely to use them first. the rest of the world can then breath a sigh of relief.
