    No, they should be legal for purchase and use. I would support city ordinances that limit how late they can be shot off though.

    It is funny reading Europeans posting that because Europeans apparently seem themselves as incompetent needing protection from themselves then Americans are too. It seems many Euros on this forum believe the fundamental purpose of government to use government power to protect them from themselves.

    Unfortunately, increasing number of American politicians pursue turning Americans into serfs too.

    What are "illegal fireworks?" Do they only allow party poppers where you're at?

    That does seem reasonable.

    If people can shoot off their mouths, they can shoot off some bottle rockets.

    Someone said it - where was it? It was a good point: "You can't babysit the world."
