    When explosives are involved there will always be a chance of injury, death and destruction

    I voted "No, but with adult supervision," only because there was no "other" option. I don't think fireworks should be outlawed, but think that some of the bigger, more dangerous ones, should only be purchased by adults 18 or older.

    Actions and consequences. Stupid people ought to get what's coming to them.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Totally agree. And then all you have to worry about is drunken fools being careless. These are the same folks who burn their trash in defiance of county burn bans.

    It should be legal to put an M-80 in a paper sack that's filled with cow feces and throw it in someone's car.

    My experience is that most of them usually get what they asked for, one way or another.

    Just a sad fact of life.
