never understood why grant county allows fireworks.every year i build a huge fire line around my home, i have too because of all the pyromanaics here.every year i walk around in my pasture picking up spent bottle rockects in the tall grass.i know there ill legal but that doesn't seem to matter.We need new laws , for even having them on your person, high fines and jail time, mandatory!I guess we will keep o going the way we do, burn grant county, burn.

Rather than griping about Grant County, you need to gripe to your legislators. It's the state, not the counties and cities, who permits the sale of fireworks. New Mexico cities and counties who have attempted to ban the sale of fireworks have consistently lost in state and federal courts because their laws and ordinanances "interfere with interestate commerce." Isn't that just a bunch of crap!

Observer is right. Fireworks are big business and big business spreads to dollars to the right pockets.

Fireworks for decades have been a part of the American celebration of the Fourth of July. Lot's of folks like to ignite fireworks for New Year's, too. But, that's enough! My poor dog is an absolute wreck during these times of so-called
"celebrations."

A few days of pops and blasts from fireworks are enough for both celebrations. Put them away after that.
