Wants city fireworks ban revisited

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJuly 3, 2013 

Banning fireworks in Bellingham is a blow to charitable organizations that use the selling of safe and sane fireworks to facilitate needed yearly budgets. I am surprised that more churches and clubs are not letting their voices be heard against what I believe to be this knee-jerk action. It is already illegal to use the real stuff from the reservations but it is not enforced.

Bottle rockets and M80s are illegal but how many arrests are made? Even after and before the 4th this abuse is going on with no consequences. So our council pounces on the legitimate displays because they are easy pick ins. This rule needs to be revisited.
