Boom ! Fireworks Coming

        Another of Albany's incremental parceling out of sin happens this month when low impact fireworks can be sold but only for a two week period prior to July 4th.  Given the licensing fees and possibility of stranded inventory, it's likely not a huge money maker.
        I don't know why it's OK for two weeks and not the other fifty, but these are the same people who worried about loud brunch eaters.

This is terrible and dangerous policy.
I still don't understand why candles, bicycle and stairs are legal in NY.
And considering how many of us don't go out on four wheelers and snowmobiles, you sure see a lot of death and injury on them every winter. I say we ban them and call it the "safer Act". How bout it pAddie?

Jeff, Lest you forget, these are Democrats and RINO's, those believers in the nanny state. No regulation is too idiotic if there is so much a an inkling that it might protect us from ourselves.

I think you hit it on the head with your "parceling" view. Except what Benito and the government lovers are parceling out is freedom. They have the power, or at least think they do, and their panties stay wet every day. But we like it this way here in the Empire State. One party rule is not a good idea, but golfers everywhere seem enamored with it.

Remember the vets who suffer from PTSD when playing with fireworks.

I've already purchased and let off these "fireworks" a few weeks ago.

Guess the stores didn't get the two week memo.

But I had fun.

These are the same people too who only enforce seat belt law two (2) weeks a year!

Jeff, all that mimosa blather, how many bottles of champagne do you stick at your tavern?
