    If state’s rights supersede Federal law, why can’t county ordinances (no pun intended) overrule state laws?

    • The009

      Federal > State > Local 🙂

      Contrary to belief states do not override federal.

        I think there was a huge dust up over that whole states rights thing about 150 years ago and it seems the federals won.

        Does anyone actually believe that state laws override federal?

        • The009

          People believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows. Yeah I am sure a lot of people think State is more powerful.

    • Rev. Analbumcover

      It doesn’t make any sense to me.

      If the state legalizes fireworks, that doesn’t mean localities can’t make them illegal. Legalizing something is more the absence of a law against it–unless that state actually has a law against passing laws against fireworks, which seems highly unlikely.

    I’m not so sure that it’s safe to let eight year olds have a chainsaw party.

    • Phil

      But which is less safe?
      Eight-year-olds at a fireworks party, or eight-year-olds at a chainsaw party?

        Funny story, I once scared the absolute crap out of a teenager friend-of-my-boyfriend who was being a twat with fireworks in the park.

        He launched something sideways at me by accident, missing me by like a few inches. A day before, I had burned my leg on my motorcycle exhaust pipe, so I come out with “LOOK WHAT YOU DID” and everything, showing him the burn, and the look on his face… absolutely priceless. My boyfriend backed me up fully too, looking like he was ready to tear into him. At least until I lost it and started giggling.

    try living in vancouver washington. they banned fireworks altogether. we didnt even get to vote on the law. the city council just passed it. complete bullshit for kids. they cant even have a sparkler. glad i live outside of city limits.

    • Rev. Analbumcover

      That’s fucked up. 🙁

      Also, I experienced mental vertigo when you mentioned Vancouver, WA. I didn’t know there was a Vancouver on that side of the border.

      • the dude

        not a lot of people do. it’s right across the river from Portland, Or.

          It’s one of the areas my hubby and I were considering for retirement, but after exploring it a couple of years ago, we decided we like other areas better. It’s nice, but not quite what we want.

          • the dude

            you must not like clean air…… and rain….. lol

          • Christine

            I have asthma so I love the rain and clean air! Other places include closer to Seattle and Seattle itself.

          • the dude

            you dont wanna move there. the traffic sucks and EVERYTHING is overpriced.

          • Christine

            I’ve lived in San Francisco for my entire adult life, so that’s actually funny. Seattle real estate is half the price of SF! As for traffic … *shudder*. Seattle traffic is nothing!
            There is a fabulous old house for sale in SF that I’m going to look at tomorrow. It’s “only” two million for a fixer-upper, 4-bed, 2-bath, on a double lot. The lot alone is worth two million, but the house is historic and probably can’t be pulled down — not that I would want to!

      Vermont’s the same way. Those finger poppers and confetti pull boxes are the only things allowed. However, we moved to Texas last year, and I’ve more than made up for 10 years without!!!

      • the dude

        i live outside of Vancouver, so we go big every year!

        Sorry to burst your bubble but there has been a way to do them legally for years. you just had to get approval from the police chief and fire chief more than uh 30? days before you do the fireworks and cant buy them until you have approval.

        • daverbes

          Can’t buy them anyway. No one sells them within the state…

          • http://www.tdome.net gabe

            as of this year they do sell them in state, have not looked to see what is for sale but just outside of Rutland there is one and somewhere else on 7.

    In Colorado, fireworks that you send shooting up are a no-no. Like mortars and bottle rockets. So if you are being a genuine ASSHOLE and setting off firecrackers for the ENTIRE WEEK of July 4th and giving my dog anxiety issues because of it, fine, I can’t do anything about that. But. If you set off bottle rockets in the field next to me that end up exploding ON MY BALCONY, I can and will report you to the cops, and suggest you start running before my husband makes use of Castle Law to construe that bottle rocket as an attempted assault.
