Enough of the Nanny state. Enough of taking freedoms away from the people. Govt is here to keep me safe from my neighbor, not myself. Progressives need to get some therapy to find out their need to control others.
Make fireworks legal. No strings attached.
Exactly... you're the person that your neighbors want to be safe from.

Bastien is a typical Republican! It's all about more business for big business
Sparklers burn at at approx. 1000 degrees and are responsible for hundreds of eye injuries in hundreds of children every year.
Every year thousands of children are burned by use of fireworks.
This rookie Rep. needs walk down from Beacon Hill to the hospital area and take a tour of the Shriners Burn Center for Children.
On the other hand, he probably won't have time, he's a one termer!!!

Youre an Idiot!!! You make Absolutely No Sense, one has Nothing to do with the other in regards to what youre talking about. DO you know him, have you ever talked to him. If you can do a better job than run against him, If not do us all a favor and Shut your mouth!!!! At least hes making a run at it and your doing nothing but asserting your right to sound like an Idiot. Happy Fourth of July Idiot!!!

Gee what a surprise....anti-fireworks sentiment in the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts.It's hard enough to find a public building that will fly an American Flag,let alone allowing people to shoot fireworks to celebrate our Nations Birthday.This state and all the "nanny state" liberals who reside here are making us the laughing stock of the nation.The conservative,Tea Party types made gains in every state in the country in Nov. except us.Who do you think is right,49 States or us?How long before we ban bathtubs,because they cause far more injuries than Fireworks!
Move, leave, no one is stopping you.
