In some ways, this is the same for many people trading in illegal drugs.

Fission, conventional, yes.
But it is unable to prevent people from building a machine gun, if they
like to do so and know how to do so.
If the LENR device of Rossi is real, they could have a difficult time to
prevent people committed from building and operating a similar device in
they homes.

Only if they are able to find you.
I always wonder, what if a very wealthy man (or group of men) build a
submersible or submarine habitat, able to be moved around the open
ocean. Do they would be able to find it? How much resources they would
need and would they commit them? If they don't know about it beforehand,
how they would discover it exist?

The procurement of the fissionable materials is the big problem.
Moving it to a Third World Country would be the easy part. Keeping it
would be the hardest part.
