Which has then conspired to de-legitimize the celebration of its own independence. I have close to zero respect for anti-fireworks laws. Go ahead and do it, but be responsible, or be held liable. What the hell is wrong with that?
What's wrong with that is that it's a little hard to track down the individual who lit the fireworks AFTER a wildfire has devastated the region. You do understand that fire prevention is the primary reason for these laws, right? (There may be rural areas where the noise frightens livestock, and that would be a legitimate reason for prohibiting their use as well).
