    Fireworks are best when done by the pros.

    Yeah, I do agree that maybe fireworks should be displays only now and not sold to the general public. There are too many idiots out there now using them.

    And it does get a bit much when people are setting off fireworks a week later after bonfire night has past.

    I say ban fireworks outright. They're nothing but a nuisance. And they terrify animals and people alike for no reason whatsoever.

    I hate the goddam things with a passion.

    It wouldn't be so bad if people did it FOR ONE NIGHT A YEAR. But it's not, it's EVERY SINGLE WINTER NIGHT. Ridiculous!

    I'm just saying since I don't care for fireworks I don't know those details. It wouldn't surprise me that consumers can't get permits, and that they're limited to companies only.

    Fireworks are very dangerous and I agree that kids shouldn't be lightening them off. It should be the parents using them responsibly.
    Visit Jacksonville, Flordia . I was there on the 4th this year and the locals put on about a two-hour show in the neighborhood. At a few points I thought they were going to set the woods on fire.

    I hate fireworks because they absolutely terrify animals. The idiots around our way let the things off for pretty much the whole of November. So every night now I have my two dogs running around the house looking for places they can hide under. They love digging their way through a mountain of shoes under the stairs were all my internet cables are hiding. Another popular choice is behind the Plasma screen... they've nearly knocked that over a few times already.

    It's not fun watching your animals shake with fear for hours every night. It gets to the point now where it gets dark and they're already shaking about what's coming for them.

    Fireworks are illegal in many cities throughout Southern California. They are in mine but the city just south of us voted to keep them legal so there are a lot of people who purchase them around the Fourth of July. Many people also smuggle them in from Mexico and Arizona throughout the year. This year, the city instituted a new ordinance that allows them to fine you if you are simply watching someone set off fireworks, you don't have to own them or set them off yourself. I believe the fine is $600 per person and $1000 if you own them. Having a fireworks charge on your record can also have your home fire insurance denied at renewal in some cases.

    We simply watch the fireworks several times a year at the Minor League baseball stadium half a mile from our house or the fairgrounds which is about a mile and a half away. We have a perfect view from the upstairs windows and just keep the dog inside for the duration.

    When I was a kid living on the base, the kids would all go down to the baseball field with their explosives (in those days, they were grenades; bazookas; their dad's .45s). Those who dads kept their weapons secured, came to the field with cherry bombs.

    My brother like building military models and taking cherry bombs and using them to destroy them. Until one day they came in the living room carrying another buddy who's kneecap was blown off (at 4 years-old seeing a trail of blood and a mangled leg wasn't nice, either).

    Now I don't have a problem with kids firing fireworks, as long as they do so under adult supervision. If they get carried away, it's time to call the cops. Otherwise, fireworks are fun. Beats the alternative: making them yourself (in the days before 9/11 it seemed to be a past-time for boys).

    I loved that movie.. I have the DVD around here somewhere..
