Harder to buy Sudafed than 6000 rounds of ammunition?


Interesting blog post . . .
quote:

When I or my husband or son need cold medication, we have to purchase it from our local pharmacist. Not simply at our local pharmacy, we have to go to the actual pharmacist, show an I.D., sign a form, and then buy the medication. We have to do this because certain types of cold medicine can be used to make meth.

I am willing to give up a bit of my personal freedom to make it more difficult for people to create a deadly drug. It’s not really that much of a hardship to hand over my driver’s license and sign my name. Big deal. What IS a big deal is that James Holmes, the suspect in the deadly shootings in Aurora, Colorado, was able to purchase all of his weapons of mass destruction, and not one flag was raised, not one computer at the Department of Homeland Security or the ATF or the FBI dinged, not one person in any of these organizations said “Holy shit, this can’t be right.”

Between May 22 and July 6, James Holmes purchased a Smith and Wesson semi-automatic rifle, two Glocks and a 12-gauge shotgun. No flags. He bought 3,000 rounds of ammunition for the semi-automatic rifle, 3,000 rounds for the two Glocks and 300 cartridges for the shotgun. No flags. Holmes made the majority of his purchases online, his ammo coming from a website called Bulk Ammo.com. 6,300 rounds and cartridges, and at no time, did anyone notice this young man was building an arsenal.

Holmes also purchased his body armor online. . . .

To the non shooter that can appear to be a lot of ammo. To the shooter, not so much...

Perhaps the emphasis could be place on derangement rather than the purchase itself?

Obviously cold medicine is much too hard to buy.

Arkansas requires a prescription and most likely an appt. If we gonna be tasked with monitoring you otc drug use, you bet your arse we're gonna charge. They keep talking about making HC more affordable, but then do shite everyday to increase it.

Sudafed is ridiculously impossible to buy. Thats why when I need some decongesting , I just buy some meth and reconstitute it in my at-home Sudafed lab.

If it's in liquid form, you can get a decongestant. Dayquil liquidcaps work well for otc. But to my knowledge, there is no plain liquid pseudofed or phenylephrine. Apparently, they can't make meth with the liquid forms.

And for any non informed people read this thread and think that a gun can be bought online ad sent to the house. This is not correct. If you buy a gun online it must be shipped to a FFL where a background check must be performed just like a gun bought in a store...

It is stupid because the major methamphetamine makers use a p2p method.

Sudafed used to be great around midnight if you planned on staying out all night. Couple of them worked wonders in keeping you awake.

6,000 rounds isn't all that much to a serious target shooter.. You have to go through about that many rounds yearly to stay proficient with a handgun.

We can thank the WOD for the Sudafed ban.. There's another homemade exponentially destructive drug just waiting to be concocted to achieve a high.
