We never purchase fireworks. There is nothing more dangerous than a small bomb in the hands of an amateur.

fireworks have more cons than pros, I wouldn't be against banning fireworks, just think of all the pollution in the air, and the waste, the litter, the animals and how they get terrified, people like to use fireworks as a weapon...and the list just keeps going, the only pro i know is that they look pretty

Hate fireworks! Until they can make all fireworks soundless, they should be banned the world over!
