The New Clothing Law banning handmade

Recently I posted about the new CPSIA law that would have affected consignment shops, secondhand stores and those who make handmade children items. We successfully fought this document just enough so that secondhand and consignment shops are now exempt from the law. They are now safe and will not be affected. We once again need the voice of Americans to raise up for the repeal or ammendment to this law. It does affect those of us who make handmade children's items to sell. Many times this is a supplemental homesteading income for most families. The cost of testing would make it impossible for us to make items and sell them. The average cost per garment would be between 400.00 to 4000.00 dollars. This is just another way for big government to interfere in the lives of Americans and stifle any choice we have in what we purchase, what we make, and what we choose for our children. This law will cause the cost of all goods to rise dramatically, so please take a stand and learn more about this law and sign the petition. Stand together and fight for the freedoms we are supposed to have in this country.
