The Four Corners is a tinderbox and the current conditions warrant a ban on fireworks. The Vendors have made enough money over the past decades and I think it is time for the community to stand up and say NO MORE, it is not worth losing anymore homes, animals or belongings!

Exactly!
Enough people have lost everything they owned because of the fires.

We only need laws because "common sense" doesn't exsist anymore. Why would anyone want to buy fireworks? This is a total waste of money and a very dangerous practice. We live in the dry desert and during July our landscape is dry and a very flamable product. Why would you want to take the chance especially this year when we are having so many problems with fire?
Use your head and brain people, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FIRE YOU START!!!!! If you are found to have started a fire you will have to pay for all the damages that are caused by it.
PLEASE DONT BUY FIREWORKS!!!!!!!!!

From the comments it seems that the real gripe most folks have it about the vendors not the fireworks. I find that quite funny, never seen a fire started at a vendor tent.
As for concerned SJC citizen, I beleive you too have made enough money over the years as well, so lets ban you from earning an income.
Let the people have their fun, if an idiot or two acts irresposible put them in jail and/or bill them for the damages. If there absolutly must be restrictions start in the outskirts of town before a ban in town, after all fire crews are more available there, quicker, and garden hoses and less flamable materials abound.

.
so instead of 5 acres of juniper and sage and native grasses you would rather see 5 acres of dirt like the dust bowl days. How un sierra-club tree hugging thinking that shows. I should own a 5 acre parking lot with no shade so you can fire off a few bucks of bottle rockets ? don't think so. I don't set my land on fire and I don't expect you or your kids to, if you do, you will pay and should be liable for any physical or envoronmental damage.

make it legal to shoot idiots shooting combustibles at your land or dwelling and I think the problem solves itself. Their careless use of fireworks can be considered a deadly threat and should be able to be met with self defense.

the 4th of july has come and gone
i have survived
as has my house
i don't know how much of SJC is in ruins right now because i have been locked inside my home
the moat i dug seems to have kept the fires at bay
i may venture out in the next few days to survey the damage done
if only SJ county had outlawed the sales of fireworks...
