The City Council need to address this. New years eve, July 4th, labor day, memorial day...we could be selling fireworks in Claremore...more sales tax revenue to run the city with.

Maybe if some didn't act careless, a permit would not be needed.

Most are too stupid. YOU lose your right whenever everything nearby goes up in smoke or people get hurt. AND, I will be the first to encourage our lawmakers enforce laws to protect us. I will also report those who break the law, and be the first to be a witness in the court of LAW.

all i have to say is that if you have wood shingles there is nothing like having the leftover crap from fireworks fall onto your roof and you have to stand out with a waterhose and hope it doesn't catch fire...or worry whether that field next to your house is going to catch fire from the remnants of fireworks and burn your house down...i am all for fireworks...don't get me wrong but they're dangerous especially when you have a bunch of drunk revellers shooting them off willy nilly.
Try a professionally applied fire retardant.

They say its the law to wear a seatbelt, but I never wear one, MY CHOICE! they say you have to get a marriage license, THERE IS NO LAW REQUIRING ONE!, they tell you that your 16 year old must be on your insurance,NOPE the law states you must have liabilty insurance on the vehicle, NOT THE DRIVER!!so most of you pay the insurance companies extra for your stupidity!! My car , my house, my body, my rules!!!
I pray your kid is safe and you never cause others pain from your insane stupidity

How does a permit make fireworks more safe? You have to pay the government money to do anything these days. I say set em' off anyway and to heck with the city. It is our right as Americans to celebrate and to be able to do so without paying a TAX!!!!!!

It's all about the money and these greedy city "officials" need to pull their heads out of their asses and realize what we do at/in our homes is none of their damn business. Screw you AND your permits.

In the past, churches inside of the City Limits of Tulsa have had fireworks stand out in the Country in Tulsa County. Their members who lived in Tulsa would go out there and buy the fireworks and take them back home and set them off.
Churches should not provide the means for their members to knowingly break the law.
I do approve of professionally produced fireworks displays on Independence Day. In fact, in the early days of the USA, Congress decided that fireworks should be set off to celebrate the Holiday every year.
Oh, it is interesting that most of the fireworks set off in the USA come from China.
What doesn't come from CHINA would be easier to answer that what does...

I enjoyed fireworks as a kid but I don't like them now except for public displays which are great. There are far too many people injured and killed every year due to fireworks, not to mention the many fires and destruction caused by them. Back in the early days of our country fireworks were a lot simpler (and probably less powerful) and there were a lot less of them. Crowed cities and neighborhoods are not the place to set them off - in my humble opinion. Too many people are troubled by them for all kinds of reasons. Animals, especially pets are terribly frightened by them and that is just plain cruel. Animals have fears and feelings just as humans do. Maybe there should be a designated area where the can be used. Lacking something like that, I truly believe they should be outlawed within cities except for organized public displays. Times have changed a lot since 1776 and it's time the laws concerning fireworks change too.
