new lead regulations - Bush signed it

Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008,
Bans all sales of powersports products for kids based on lead content , batterys, levers, frames.
all motorcycle shops had to quit selling replacement parts and all kids 4 wheelers and motocross bikes.
how far behind are lead bullets.
Just a few things I can see being affected are, older car sales, kids at airports or anywhere where leaded fuel is burned, kids at a gun range, kids toys with a circuit board with solder on it.

what can you think of with lead in it kids could come in contact with?
dirt in your yard --- 200-500 ppm of lead is commonly found in city soil.
pellet guns
bicycles
gocarts
aluminum bats
comic books
vintage children’s books
Many bicycles can't be sold because the valve stem on the tires contains a small amount of lead.
It's also against the law to promote a race with any of the banned products on the list

"All minibikes, pitbikes and even OSET's fall under this act, as well as ATV's sold for youths. 85cc or smaller, gone. I can't get parts, I can't even get stickers. As of today, all the major motorcycle and ATV manufacturers have instructed their dealers to remove all bikes and ATV's used by children from inventory and to cease advertising, marketing, selling, possibly servicing these products. The lead contained in these bikes is not in the paint; it's in the metal used for certain parts in the engines and electrical parts. Most dealers have also been instructed to stop selling parts and accessories for the bikes as well. "

Yea, they over regulated after the Chinese toy scare. Bush, once again pushed for a bill that he could sign and didn't care what the net result was.

He seems to do that a lot. He did it with the Prescription Drug bill too. He literally told Congress that he didn't care what was in the bill, he just wanted it on his desk so he could fulfill a campaign promise.

all forms of auto racing next target

all synthetic rubber contains lead, tire smoke contains lead. Lead is in the air at all auto races in the form of rubber particles.

The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 is a United States law signed on August 14, 2008 by President George W. Bush. The legislative bill was known as HR 4040, sponsored by Congressman Bobby Rush.

Bobby Lee Rush (born November 23, 1946) is an American politician from Illinois. A Democrat, he has served in the United States House of Representatives as the member from Illinois' 1st congressional district since 1993. Rush's district is located principally on the South Side of Chicago. It is a minority-majority district and has a higher percentage of African Americans (65%) than any other congressional district in the nation. Rush has the distinction of being the only person to date to defeat President Barack Obama in an election for public office.

Rush is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, as well as a former member and founder of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party.

Well that explains his attack on events usually involving a father and their children...
