It used to not be in Kentucky, but it was basically completely unenforced.

NEW YORK

Specifically prohibited: Firecrackers, torpedoes, skyrockets, roman candles, bombs, and sparklers.

The fireworks out here is pretty impressive. Enough that the cops came by a few years ago and yelled at us that we were blocking the road firing stuff off and need to make sure the road is clear. Didn't say a thing about the fireworks.

Maryland rocks. We can have sparklers AND poppers.

I sign a paper saying I will transport them out of state after buying them.

Then I don't.

Got to be Ohio...

That law confused the hell out of me when I lived there due to it's headscratching stupidity.  "Here you go, here's some stuff that you can literally kill yourself with*.  No, no, no, I don't need to see a certificate that shows you know what you're doing with it.  Just promise to go use another state's health care resources when you blow yourself up..."

Two days later when the cops turn up investigating how a family party got multiple 3rd degree burns - "But, but,  but, they SAID that they were going to use it elsewhere.....

/*such as the 8" mortar shells sold right next to the sparklers....

Any type of firework in the hands of someone not specifically trained to us them is always a stupid idea.

In my corner of MI, we're allowed any fireworks on the 4th and New Years. Any other day, we just drive over to Indiana.

July 4 fireworks is just the American way of saying "We want to go to war with someone so bad, we just can't stand it anymore!"

Stupid fireworks.

Minnesota doesn't allow anything much more than a sparkler. But we live right next to Wisconsin which sells bottle-rocket-molotov-cocktails-M80-pipebombs and everything just comes over here anyways.

/Farkin hate the noise.

I live in Missouri, you can buy almost anything.  Blow yourself, no prob. Light your neighbors house on fire, due to your drunken redneck stupidity, sure!

I live in a nice subdivision in a nice area.  It sounds like Baghdad cr. 2004.

I live about 20 min from the NY/PA border. About 500 feet over the state line are 2 huge fireworks stores.

If you're a PA resident, you can only buy sparklers and shiat. If you're from NY or NJ, they'll sell you all kinds of explosives to transport home illegally. I went there yesterday (allegedly) and bought about $300 worth of mortars and other goodies to take upstate.

No and no.

I will once again  be illegally  celebrating the birth of my nation by blowing up a small piece it.. Not a bad backyard show  featuring  abot 15 minutes of the best class c fireworks available without a permit.-  all  thanks to the fine buisnesses  across the border in the "Live Free ior Die" state.

Right here in Florida we have a fireworks tent on every block and it's not even the redneck part. Yee haw!

My entire county in Arizona is under an EXTREME fire restriction (even though monsoons started 2 days ago). We're not even allowed sparklers. Seriously.

Every New Year's Eve in Iceland is an opportunity for every citizen to stock up on some of the largest, most powerful fireworks as a year-end tax write-off that funds their coast guard and mountain rescue teams.  It's nonstop insanity from horizon to horizon for hours, with most fireworks still going off at 4AM.

Video captured from 2013-2014 New Year's Eve here!!

That is not true, re read the law you can do them in the 72 hour period around any federal holiday.

Oh, I was just going by what I've heard. Anyway, we're good to go with a very rainy spring and fine weather the next two days.

Meh. We're going for the annual burning of A Mountain again this year.
Private fireworks are illegal and will go off all farking night.
And bullets will again fall like rain on rooftops all over town.

i live in new orleans, and i read the link for louisiana. i have no idea what it meant, because i know nothing about fireworks.

but, i do know that you can do whatever you want because every neighborhood is going to have some outrageous private fireworks debacle and the cops don't seem to care.

/ please, no shooting guns at the sky.

That's just tradition, though. I lived just south of campus on 10th and Santa Rita. It wasn't the greatest neighborhood back in '99. I don't know how it is now.

Most fireworks are legal in ND (although they banned bottle rockets... wtf?), but only outside city limits. They're illegal in Bismarck and Fargo, and in most other cities and towns they get caught by after-dark noise ordinances. Since I won't be hanging out on any farms tomorrow, I guess I'm SOL.
