((There was relief for the parents of some Dunblane primary school students. Their children were safe. Others received the worst news a parent can ever hear: that their child had been killed. For those students able to walk away there was fear and confusion. Concerned townspeople raced to Dunblane primary school as soon as word of the shootings became known. Shortly after 9:30 this morning -- 4:30 eastern time -- 43-year- old Thomas Hamilton, a loner from a nearby town, entered the school's gymnasium, carrying four handguns -- and reportedly attempted to take his own son hostage. A few minutes later, Hamilton opened fire on the four, five and six year olds inside. In addition to those killed, as many as 17 children were injured -- some critically. After the massacre, Hamilton turned the gun on himself. Dunblane, near the Scottish Highlands, is described as the kind of town all of us want to live in. Its seven-thousand residents are in shock.

Methamphetamine is often made in makeshift labs by starting with the drug ephedrine, found in over the counter asthma medications, cold medications and pep pills and then mixed with various chemicals.
