Due to how dry everything is and the fact that I have common sense, I plan on being extra cautious this year with fireworks I purchase. There hasn't been an independence day I haven't celebrated yet in my 48 years, nor will there be one so long as I'm here.

NO and I do not think they should be sole, so many people are NOT responsible and it is too hot, way too hot and dry just asking for trouble. Like the kid a few years ago that started the big Columbia Gorge fire!

I don't usually, and don't understand WHY they are being sold when they have been outlawed this year due to the high temps and fire danger. Why were fireworks even sold?? It will only encourage /allow rule-breakers and others who don't give a crap about anything but a few hours of entertainment.

It is insane that we are allowing fireworks to be sold this years. Too many chances of mishaps by people that don't take proper precautions.

Celebrating Fourth of July knowing that America is colonized, and people don’t accept it is the main reason. Another is consumerism. Finally, the earth is a heat ball. It’s dry. It is at risk. Last year, a couple of drunk folks launch fireworks at are yard and caught it on fire. All for a post. Nah.

Psychologically speaking teens lack the ability to consider consequences prior to making decisions and taking action. This isn't speculation, as there is scientific evidence that support this. Biologically the areas of the brain that are a part of decision making aren't fully developed until later.

If the belief is that adults convicted of violent crimes can be paroled because they won't re-offend, juveniles should also get that chance since they are more likely to change their life path than an adult.

I knew Barb, and to have her beaten by her son while conscious is beyond being eligible for parole . She was so nice and she loved him so much. I do believe some cases should be but not this one
