Anyone doing a yard sale, please first read and understand the manual that has been thoughtfully provided for you by the Consumer Product Safety Commission to inform you of what you may or may not resell. Please remember that you are explicitly required to follow these regulations, that it is your responsibility to follow every relevant government regulation involved in this, and that ignorance of the law is not an excuse. You may not get caught – but then again, maybe you will.
Via Reason, via Instapundit. To me, the most frustrating thing about this manual is that it actually has a good deal of useful product safety information in it; stuff that consumers should know about. If the government had just left it at that… but that would require trusting the markets, and the only entity less willing to do that than the (Democrat-controlled) 110th Congress is the (even more Democrat-controlled) 111th one.
Much obliged, Speaker Pelosi. Some of us can’t buy new for our kids, you know.
