Bush has nothing to do with the fact that fireworks are illegal in new york its a state law not a country law. I also feel fireworks in NY should be legalized

please go to my facebook jordan brock for congress and please read my argument on why fireworks should be legal in new york. i think that if fireworks are made legal in new york it will bring billions in taxes and thousands of new jobs and thousands of new businesses that we need.if you ask the question why are cigarettes legal ? cigarettes are more damaging then fireworks i thing fireworks dont cause cancer and a few issues about why DWI is a real problem in new york but we still have that and the only ones getting rich from that are the lawyers if we push hard enough i think we can get this done tell everyone to go to my facebook at jordan brock for congress and sigh my petition to legalize fireworks in new york

Hey Mom (from Florida who has something to say about fireworks in NY),

Get educated before you make two word comments about something you clearly know nothing about.

Fireworks sales have increased the last 7 years drmaicly, while the injury rate has gone down.

Statisticly, you have a higher chance of getting hurt by a wild ball at a baseball game, chocking on popcorn, or being injured in your vehicle. With that beign said, obviously consumer fireworks are SAFE.

Not to mention New York could stand to earn a little sales tax on the venture while celebrating the fact is it one of the 13 colonies.

So Mom, be PATRIOTIC, not pessimistic!

i think the ban on fireworks is a bunch of bs they should lift the ban so we can have our own shows and they can also raise more state revenue by allowing firework retail sales. face it nys government sucks thay can't even run the state why should they be able to run us and stupid laws and bans

The thing is, that the city of New York has more hazards, and things to cause fires with their location. However, New Mexico fireworks don't have all that stuff, that is why most places that have legalized fireworks are out in the desert and open spaces areas, because there is less chance of fires.

A bill recently passed both the assembly and the senate that would make "safe & sane" fireworks legal in NY. Now the bill sits on the governor's desk, all he needs to do is sign it and it immediately becomes law. Now would be a good time to pick up the phone and call the governor's office to support the pro fireworks effort. Tell him you support the bill and it is in the brst interest of NY that the bill gets put into law.

FIREWORKS SHOULD BE LEGAL, THEY ARE A SYMBOL OF FREEDOM, WHO MAKES UP THESE CRAZY LAWS, WHY ARE CIGARETTES LEGAL AND BEING SOLD TO KIDS. I'LL TELL YOU WHY BECAUSE THE MORE PEOPLE THAT GET CANCER THE PHARMACUTICAL COMPANIES AND HOSPITALS AND GOV'T GET FILTHY RICH OFF OF IT. WAKE UP CONGRESS I THINK MORE PEOPLE DIE FROM CANCER THAN FROM SHOOTING FIRECRACKERS... CIGARETTES KILL, GUNS KILL, BUT YET THEY ARE SOLD AND TAXED AND THE GOV'T MAKES MONEY. GIVE US PATRIOTIC CITIZENS A BREAK FOR ONCE AND LET US CELEBRATE OUR FREEDOM ONCE A YEAR AND GO ARREST SOME DAM TERRORISTS INSTEAD
