MasSucKchusetts is a NANNY STATE. The POLICE CHIEFS, are all Whinners who never had charge of anything until they became cops. Now they have to exert that power over others. Once they have power they don't want let it go, even though the power does come from them but from the CITIZENS. You can't a power hungry POLICE CHIEF that.

Just legalize fireworks already! We're all made to feel like criminals on the 4th of July with things the way they are.

The Asians put on a good display every weekend in Lowell. People who want them will get them, so why not have the revenue stay in the state.

Lol like this bill will EVER pass! Does this crazy rep remember what state he's in?? Or who the Governor is??

Of course people should be able to use fireworks, just like we should be able to own guns, eat transfats, or smoke cigars...but this sir, is Massachusetts! Here our elected (recently re-elected) public officials sit around all day and decide what we shouldn't be able to do!

In NH you can buy fireworks, but using them in NH is illegal.

Everyone knows in MA the only legal fireworks are the ones confiscated by the police and end up being shot off from their back yards on the 4th

Wrong!

Class C, Consumer fireworks are legal to use in NH. In fact, if you'd like a list of permissible fireworks, here you go:

Yup, vote republican and all Ma problems will be solved. How many more state workers will be hired for this fiasco.
Let's see fireworks, legal pot and casinos. That should keep the voters minds busy while us pols line our pockets.

Anymore, it is shocking to read the Lowell Sun on line. We left the BIG NANNY STATE back in 1979 and the fact that some of the elected have the GUTS to confront the 'GOODY-GOODY'S" in Boston and elsewhere, well, I'm glad that I am sitting down when I read it.

Keep up the good work and who knows. some day, you may match that saying on your number plates.
