Legal action against chemical supply companies -- the link given as a citation is a link to an external page that is primarily opinion based. Seeking citation that is fact based. Lynne Jorgensen 01:53, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Legal action against chemical suppliers[edit]

As of 2006, the CPSC is pursuing legal action against chemical supply companies, claiming that sales of chemicals such as oxidizers and powdered metals contribute to the production of illegal firecrackers. This legal action has drawn considerable criticism from the chemical suppliers themselves, as well as rocketry and pyrotechnics enthusiasts. Companies such as United Nuclear have alleged that the CPSC is overstepping its bounds and is attempting to snuff out amateur chemistry research [1]. [citation needed] Despite the link, there was no real citation given for this other than the politically biased self-published material, which does not meet Wikipedia guidelines. Hence, the deletion. Lynne Jorgensen 01:49, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

What exactly is it you're looking to have verified? That the CPSC is cracking down? Or that the crackdown has drawn criticism? If the former, how about this link: [2] If the latter, I'd say the United Nuclear link provided does so quite well... But here are some others: [3] [4] [5] -- MyrddinEmrys 08:38, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

The offending sentence did not flow; "hampering scientific research" is neither cited nor valid. Either way -- this is a terrorist mindset. It may have a place on wikipedia were it cited, but it does not. Please take your explosives elsewhere. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.183.34.154 (talkcontribs)

Who's talking about explosives? Hydrogen used as an automotive fuel source has nothing to do with terrorism. Please take your paranoid mindset elsewhere. -- MyrddinEmrys 09:52, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

MyrddinEmrys, Please put your citations in the article itself. That's the point of citations. Lynne Jorgensen 23:33, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Happy to. But what exactly is it you're asking me to cite? I'm still not clear on that. -- MyrddinEmrys 01:08, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
Actually, I just added two; how's that look? Any better? -- MyrddinEmrys 03:48, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
