Fuckheads in the neighborhood are already setting off fireworks.
The GOOD fireworks are illegal in most places here...doesn't stop people from getting them. I only have to drive a few miles to one of the indian reservations and I can get just about anything I want. The po-po are stretched too thin to enforce the "no fireworks" laws.I wish fireworks were legal here. With the pandemic and fact that our fireworks are cancelled it would have been nice if they at least made them legal for this week. Too many laws and regulations these days, can't have any fun.
In Ontario, fireworks were only allowed twice a year: Victoria Day and Canada Day. Most cities do some on New Years Eve.Watching the Erie news the police there have been trying to deal with this for a couple weeks now. I think this is PA's first, maybe 2nd year of legally selling fireworks instate.
Fire dept. was called out the other night as someone was firering them off late at night & started a roof fire.
Oh did not realize they actually were allowed on Canada Day. That's good to know. Though I guess it depends on the city too, don't know if my city allows them, I don't think they do. Part of the issue is there are idiots who ruin it for everyone by not doing it safely. It's best to launch over a lake, or at least a sports field.

There's been a firework tent in the Walmart parking lot for the last 2 weeks. I haven't gone in though, as I don't want to end up like Jason Pierre-Paul.
It's all fun-n-games till, ya know... your hair catches fireA group of people convinced a man with an intellectual disability to sit in the street while they shot fireworks at him, while they caught it all on camera. That man is speaking out.
