Should fireworks be banned?
This is a VERY regional dependent question. However much I hate government intervention, Southern California, especially this time of year, is VERY flammable with all the wild brush. The wildfires created are then extremely destructive.
Plus no matter how much I love fireworks and try to be safe with them, there is an inherent fire risk with them. One summer, in Michigan I believe, I was playing with them and accidentally created a mini brush fire. No damage done there but here...!
Only if there's a fire hazard in your area. A few years back the town banned fireworks because there were brush fires in the area.
No, but they are a huge waste of money.
Only the if they are made in China....... Oh wait, that's everything in America..........
Minus the 'the' :-)
Entirely? No. As used by the general public without a permit? In locations where it would be a hazard to the general public, as in Colorado in the summer, yes.
Fireworks aren't inherently bad. You can use them safely. Ban the act (hurting others), not the product (fireworks).
