    Why do they restrict QuikClot ACS+ Advanced Clotting Sponge
    First Aid Hemostatic Agent 3.5oz 100g Z-Medica Sponge but not the smaller one?

    If the question is what I think it is, cause to many people who don't know what they're doing would try to use it when there is no need not to mention make the problem worse than it needs to be.

    Because some people go overboard on treatments and medications.

    Either one, overdone, can be detrimental to one's health.

    They want all gun shot victims to go to the hospital and be reported to the po-po.

    For the same reason you can buy 200 mg ibuprofen over the counter, but not 800 mg.

    WHAT?!?!? You can't buy skills?!?!?

    You are correct. It is rarely needed, and certain kinds can be deadly if people have certain allergies (ie..shellfish).

    Most bleeding, including amputations, can be controlled in a civilian environment with direct pressure, absorbent pads, and if absolutely necessary, a tourniquet.
