Its just odd as here in the UK I visit a number of coin shops and it just seems like a normal business. All of them in top end high street areas not shady back room alleys.
Had no idea they were viewed so negatively in the states.
It always comes as a shock to me the things your restricted or banned from buying.
Im starting a chemicals sales company company to get a bit of part time cash. Things im supplying are 100% legal to buy and sell in the UK but the same thing would get be 25 years in a US jail!
I like fireworks and buy them all the time here in the UK. Big ones. Again id get jail time in the states.
Its odd that you can buy a machine gun but cant buy common chemicals or fireworks and now coins
Makes zero sense to me.

Wait, wut? o.O I understand the point of being wary of shady businesses, but if I read this right, the government is harassing (essentially) banks for doing legitimate business . . . with legitimate businesses?
And the reason for this would be? Did the government appoint itself the Moral Authority or something (wait, redundant question)
