I live outside of this town but work there. The city council just enacted an ordinance without a vote of the people, to outlaw legal fireworks except for a few day period around the 4th and December 31st.

Legal fireworks here in Oregon already suck balls so it's not like they're outlawing anything that goes boom or lights up the sky.(And yes I understand the reasons to keep that kind of stuff out of the hands of morons.)

But legal fireworks? This means you can't light up a few jumping jacks or sparklers on your kids' birthdays or your wedding anniversary UNLESS (this is the good part) you buy a permit from the city granting permission to do so.

And the sad part about it is that there are some people who agree with this nonsense.

Yeah it's weird to me. I've been rolling my eyes all day since the news broke. When are people going to say they've had enough of the micromanagement from government. Oregon is REAL bad about it and getting worse every year.

Yep and like I said above, there's reasons to keep that crap out of the hands of morons, but that's not the issue here.

Actually, you hit the nail on the head. Thanks for clarifying that for me.

What was legal now isn't - unless you have the blessing from the local liberal government.
