Bath Salts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...d-rampage.html

Another terrible example of 'bath salts' . This is close to home , only 25 miles ,a small town in NE PA. One wonders if stun guns were the appropriate response .But another example of 'it can happen anywhere' and reason for being armed .
BTW, Daily Mail reports many happenings in the USA.

Judge Roy Bean had an excellent solution for this sort of anti-social behavior. I vote for its return.

And as for being short on the kindest, gentlest chemicals for that last trip, just OD 'em on heroine.

Rule 2: The Double Tap
Rule 25: Shoot first

Now that that's out of the way...

The world was a much safer place before drugs that made you insane. Worst you had to worry about was an undernourished smack-addict attempting to take your wallet or steal your TV and attempt to sell it back to you....now there's superhuman strength and face-eating....

Police initially believed Eugene may have been under the influence of bath salts.
Uhhhh, what? Can someone clue me in on this? Are people using bath salts as some kind of drug now? What do they do with it, smoke it like a crack rock?

IIUC (no guarantee here), "bath salts" are a street name for a drug, not actual bath salts. A quick web search turned up more information here: http://www.webmd.com/mental-health/f...s-drug-dangers

Not much tactics, training or firearms discussion happening here.
