Not allowed to make jewelry...I just read an article about

Not allowed to make jewelry...
I just read an article about a man who decided to make jewelry as a home based business. He tried to do the right thing and applied for a liscense with his city. They denied him the liscense because the fire department says the gas tanks used in silversmithing are a fire hazard. But it's the same gas used in our gas grills and camping equipment! He agreed to a whole list of safety regulations and they still denied him. Now his city is trying to stop him from creating jewelry as a hobbyist as well. I feel so bad for this guy...

Here's the article if you are interested in reading it.
