Lead poisoning law has side effect

“In all his years of riding motorcycles, 63-year-old Ted Micone of Yakima County has yet to see a child get lead poisoning from one.

That’s why he’s baffled by a new federal law that took effect Feb. 10. It came about after a deluge of China-made products were recalled starting in 2006, prompting outcries from parents and consumer groups.

Included in the law are revised lead limits for off-road and recreational vehicles designed for kids – effectively halting the sale of such machines across the country.”

Honestly, I’m speechless.  Just since February, this lead law has restricted individual freedom and negatively affected businesses of all kinds, from toy stores to consignment stores and now ATV dealerships.  The federal government is also usurping parental authority–as a parent, I view it as my right and responsibility to make decisions about my child’s safety.
