It's amazing to some of my friends now, But I was young once, and like most
kids, fireworks were of great interest to me. I'm sure if I and the other boys in the neighborhood
had had access to mortar
shells and grenades, we would have been tempted to
fire them off. Therein lies my point: powerful exploding devices-in the way of aerial fireworks- ARE accessible to kids nowadays. Couple this fact with the added problem of some adults who insist on throwing caution and common sense to the wind, and you have
a situation which results
in injuries, fire and property damage, and extra work for emergency service responders. This problem must be gotten under control somehow, and the sooner the better.
Tighter regulation and enforcement may help, along with better education. Also, I applaud efforts to limit the use of fireworks to July 4th. In areas which do not have this limit, fireworks can be heard and seen two weeks before
and after the 4th. It is not unusual to be awakened as late (or early) as 2 or 3 in the morning, by someone setting off fireworks in the neighborhood.This has gotten to be a real nuisance here. I am all for kids having fun, and adults too. Especially when celebrating a historical event in our country, but, due to those
people who insist on ruining things for everybody, there MUST be
an emphasis placed on public awareness and education, new rules and guidelines, and enforcement, to deal with
this fireworks issue.

Yeah, they all went from Mukilteo to Lynnwood to make the 4th a living hell here. Please ban fireworks in Lynnwood.
