Besides the fire danger I am a Viet Nam vet and after my last tour I had PTSD and the fire works would really set me off so now I still go tp bed on the 4th with ear plugs in.

Yes, to not ban fireworks when the conditions are so right for fires to burn and destroy homes from people who are just careless and inconsiderate warrants a ban. Allow profession fireworks, see the show, celebrate. Just humans being typically irresponsible specially when conditions are bad.

I'd rather my home didn't burn to the ground than light a couple sparklers.

I think we can do without a little pleasure for the sake of less fires and the public's health.

Yes fireworks have always been a problem, causing fires and injuries, not to mention noise pollution for people who go to bed early. With the fire danger in our area, I think it is terribly irresponsible to allow any fireworks in any county!!! Ban them! Ban them ALL!

I would support it, but it's pretty useless if police won't enforce it.

We need to be good little puppets. We need to go to work pay taxes and go home and close the door behind us. Get up and do it again. NOTHING ELSE!

No, that's going overboard!

This is ridiculous, that what independence day is all about is the fireworks, how about doing some forest management to prevent wildfires

If people would be more caustious and follow the current rules and regulations regarding fireworks we wouldn't have as much of an issue. Having small fireworks in the driveway and kids with sparklers is a huge fire hazzard especially if you're paying attention and have a hose ready just in case.

Of course. Why not? Freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.

A person is free to pray wherever they want. I you don't like it, move on.

What a stupid question. Who could oppose allowing "coaches...to pray at games", or anywhere else? But, should coaches, or anyone else, be "allowed" to coerce anyone to pray anywhere? You fail, again.

So, you're good with praying to Satan and allowing government employees to coerce people to do so?

What ever happened to the separation of church and state? I'm so sick of the religious right dictating our laws.

Today's Supreme Court religio-extremists have ruled otherwise, but a founder, namely Jefferson, desired a "wall of separation between Church and State." He produced a version that excludes all miracles by Jesus and most mentions of the supernatural, including the resurrection.
