I don't mind the fireworks. It's the inconsiderate people that aim bottle rockets and other projectiles over others' homes.
Several years ago a gentleman perished in a fire caused by a type of firework that landed on his roof.
Many of the people that set these off are kids, off for the summer. Yet some of us have jobs, and it's hard to sleep when these things are going off at 2am.

And another thing, you'd think people would be WAY more tolerant BECAUSE IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT HOLIDAY FOR AMERICANS. I think people should let loose and be even MORE hyperactive in the holiday celebrating our countries independence. BE GREATFUL AND DEAL WITH IT FOR ***ONE*** NIGHT!!!!!

No, it's not 'one' night a year. It's been every night for the last several weeks, until the wee hours of the morning. So no, I am not 'grateful' for that. I am grateful for the holday and what it means. And no, I don't think we need any 'hyperactive' people celebrating the holiday.
Perhaps, up in MD you have no problems, but this article is about my town and my neighborhood.

Throwing your flaming garbage on other people’s property with no accountability should never have to be tolerated and that is exactly what happens when fireworks are shot of in suburban neighborhoods. Fireworks are fine in a rural setting but should be banned everywhere else.

As a trained and experience (5 years now) pyrotechnician, I do firmly beleive that any person that is wanting to use even class "c" fireworks should be required to go to a fireworks safety and training seminar (such as the one offered by Pyrotechnico every year that is free of charge. If people are better educated and are instructed on the proper use of fireworks, maybe we wouldn't have as many accidents.
