Eliot Spitzer. Keep this name in mind. Very dangerous man.




STATE DEAL MUZZLES TOY GUNS

December 20, 2004 -- ALBANY ? A settlement with major national wholesalers has pulled thousands of toy guns that violate New York state law from shelves, many of them from a new target ? costume shops.

The wholesalers were estimated to have distributed more than 12,000 toy guns in 2001 alone in violation of a state law that previously had been applied only to retailers.

The settlement with New York state Attorney General Eliot Spitzer's office is different from past actions in that it targets wholesalers and companies that specialize not in toys, but costume props and novelties.

Spitzer said the distributors sold toy guns that violated a 15-year-old state law that bans realistic-looking toy guns unless they had permanent, usually inch-wide, orange stripes running down both sides of the barrel.

Without admitting any wrongdoing, Rubie's Costumes Co. agreed to pay $27,000 in civil penalties and costs and Franco American Novelty Co. agreed to pay $10,000 to end Spitzer's civil action.

I believe it was US Grant who said that the best way to eliminate a bad law was through its rigorous enforcement.

This is only one thing. He is a shake down artist posing as AG. No one's wallet is safe with this guy around and he aspires to higher office.

This is the kind of big government the left likes.

It may see extreme, but the lawsuit was certainly worth it. Just think of all the kids saved from those toy guns without the orange stripe. :bangin:
