    Danger and only being useful on one day of the year.

    I like looking at them, sure, but they get boring. There's so many people abusing them, even with fireworks you basially have to wear a welding helmet now. Interesting idea.

    Yeah wtf is up with that. I've never met anyone even remotely opposed to them yet they are illegal in many places.

    Anyone seen the episode of southpark where they make the giant snake since they can't have fireworks for the fourth of july show? Fckin hillarious.
    You want to sit down but you sold your chair.
    So you just stand there.

    I dunno. The greatest time I ever had was just a few days ago when my asian friend invited me to Chinese New Year. Now the Chinese know how to put on a firework show

    And that, is why they are dangerous! Even though I've never had a snake, especially one that would grow up at 1000ft tall.

    LOL! Safety freak.

    You don't need any protection at all when using fireworks.
    In fact, it's more fun when you are reckless with them.


    I think the ban should be lifted in Georgia, because it's a pointless ban. Thousands of people trek to the surrounding states to illegally buy fireworks (including myself) and nothing is done about it. Why not just lift the ban?

    My family owned a store a few years back, and they always closed it in fear that fireworks would happen again. My father had just stepped out in the back and then there came a firework. God knows what would have happened if he was actually in there, or any of the kids.

    I've witnessed a lot of fireworks being shot off in random directions, random meaning horizontally. With thousands of people and children going to displays, this is going to be awful. No doubt, I'd want to take my kids to displays to see the pretty colors, but I'm going to be scared out of my wits trying to protect them. Maybe I could just shoot the fireworks.

    Personal experience is nothing to go by in a good "debate".

    I hope you all realize that I'm mostly for fireworks. I just used that as a comparison in the gun ban thread. They're only commonly used on one day a year, pretty doubtful for guns. Unless you want to introduce the art of creating a fireworks display in the Olympics, then they're fine for one day a year.

    Oh yeah, I remember now. You know those little metal caps that have the little rockets that make them spin up in the air? I got slugged in the face with one of those when I was little
