You know what they say about chit? Yes it happens. People get hurt and even killed enjoying their hobbies. SO what should we do, Nothing because we may get hurt?

Burn ban or not, We will have a fun 4th of July. I sold $200.00 in food stamps and bought fireworks and beer. And will shoot them off. Burn ban who cares
