Got the bullets, where are the fire arms?  May we 'believe' that most drugs sellers are using their products themselves as well? That many of them are in possession of weapons is very alarming seen their many times unstable state of mind. The government should double her efforts to tackle this danger on tourist island Phuket to make the island more tourist safe.
