It is not correct to say many injuries from consumer fireworks result in the loss of limbs. Injuries from consumer fireworks are generally minor in nature and do not require treatment. Severe injuries where there is a loss of limb are caused by homemade or illegal explosives. Those types of explosives are not classified as consumer fireworks and are not government approved. Also, the statement that 2 persons died from fireworks related accidents doesn't mean that consumer fireworks were involved. In the case of fatalities, illegal explosives or professional fireworks are usually involved. Consumer fireworks are approved by the federal government for use in this country.

Why don't you show the clip where the overpaid fire marshal almost blows his face off? For anyone that missed it, this "expert" placed two large boxes of fireworks on the cinder blocks. BOTH of the boxes were hanging off the edges of the blocks...then the genius lights the first box, and while attempting to light the second box, almost got a blast to the face. If this doesn't prove that our "heroic" fireman are just overpaid clowns, I don't know what will.
