Remember how leftists mocked when, earlier this year, people warned that the hastily passed Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act granted overly broad powers to regulate even small businesses and thrift shops? Well, it’s actually worse than people thought. Reason quotes from the the official CPSA Handbook for Retail Stores and Product Resellers:
This handbook will help sellers of used products identify types of potentially hazardous products that could harm children or others. CPSC’s laws and regulations apply to anyone who sells or distributes consumer products. This includes thrift stores, consignment stores, charities, and individuals holding yard sales and flea markets.
You rarely go wrong in assuming that government will grab all the power it can.
