Do you think the sale of fireworks should be restricted?
What I think should be restricted is the time between fireworks are allowed to go off. Just right before I started this post at 8 PM on a Tuesday, there was fireworks going off outside. It’s the third of January, new year is over, people.
I think it’s the same neighbors who plays with fireworks during the month of July, too. In Utah, there are 2 holidays in July during which fireworks are allowed to go off – Independence Day (4th of July) and Pioneer Day (24th of July). People are allowed to play with fireworks 3 days before and after the holidays plus the night of. Basically, there are 2 weeks out of the months in which fireworks will be going off every night. Get ready for some sleepless nights.
I think the sale of fireworks should also be restricted based on climate. In the summer, there is wildfire all around. One careless spark and things can go ablaze. I’ve seen so much news coverages for accidental man-made fires in the mountains because they were playing with fireworks.
That’s all I have to say about it.
