NEW Info For Vintage Sellers from the CPSC Re: CPSIA Lead Law!

If you sell vintage or antique Children's items, this is extremely important information! It seems the CPSC has added a twist to their previous statement that re-sellers are exempt from testing. I just wrote a whole post about it on the Vintage List blog...

CPSC = Consumer Protection Safety Commission.

I think a simple Notice posted in your store or website someplace would exempt you from any wrong-doing. I think the laws is needless and useless. I think that ENFORCEMENT is impossible. Regarding Lead paint in homes, Since its' enactment in 2004 one person (that's ONE PERSON) was sentenced to 2 years in jail not for lead-based paint, but for lying about it and falsifying tenants' signatures!

There are other laws; the FDA has very restrictive laws on the use of pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fertilizers, etc. with NO ENFORCEMENT.

Most States have Usury laws; the amount of interest a Lender/bank can charge-pegged at 12% in most states. BUT NO ENFORCEMENT. Did you know your Credit Card company is breaking the law? I think that is the SECRET they don't want you to know.
To determine your State's law on Usury go to the Library (call first) or Courthouse, Clerk's Office-Law Dept. Look up the Usury Law in the index and then read the laws. Or hire an attorney! They might even be posted on-line.

On this new law I just cannot see the US GOVT enforcing it. Perhaps if a kid gets sick and dies, then maybe after the fact, but even so the possibility of high fines, prison, etc. is absurd.

Also, the CPSC has laws regarding swimming pool drains. They have virtually NO ENFORCEMENT, in fact if an incident happens, before they can prosecute you, they have to give you time to fix the problem. I would think the same would apply to this new law.

I am not an attorney; the aforementioned is my opinion based upon research.
