This is very frustrating. Somehow snopes.com has convinced the world that they are always right, and they are announcing that the concern over the CPSIA is all “premature hysteria.”
The resale “clarification” issued by the CPSC basically says, “Don’t worry about this. We don’t mean YOU.” But the law has not changed, and if you do any googling (another hybrid word) of the national resale and thrift store associations, you will see that they are not convinced that this places them outside the letter of the law. The CPSC doesn’t have the authority to change the law – it must be done by legislature.
Opinions regarding and intent of laws don’t really matter. The law must be entirely rewritten to target the real, very important issue.
