English: The Seal of the Drug Enforcement Administration (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Why is it in America you can buy guns easier than you can buy some over the counter drugs that many people need ?
My wife and I both have allergies and use Allegra-D just about every day. When we go to buy this allergy relief drug we have to show our driver's license each time to purchase a package. The government keeps track of how much we buy and limits the amount that we can purchase to 9 grams per month. This means that my wife and I must purchase this medication separately for each of us. In other words, it's more difficult to buy our allergy medication than it is to buy guns and ammunition and bulletproof gear in some places.
We understand the reason for keeping track of these pills is so that bad people can't make more dangerous drugs to sell on the streets, such as meth.
If we are so concerned about saving people, why then do we not limit or do a better job of controlling who can buy guns and materials to make explosives?
Many states make selling guns too easy. Maybe it's time to let the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) take control of how many guns people can purchase in a specific time span and what type of guns are available ( for example, hunting rifles versus automatic weapons).
