Exploding, Flying Fireworks Illegal

"Pretty much any firework that explodes or flies is illegal," said Lt. Stu Miller, spokesman for the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office. Miller said every city ordinance is a little different, but all cities ban the aerial and exploding varieties, such as firecrackers, bottle rockets and mortar-style fireworks. Some fireworks can be sold and used legally between midnight June 23 and midnight July 5, but no fireworks are allowed on state land. The Bureau of Land Management issued a press release Tuesday, stating fireworks are illegal on all public property from May 10 to Oct. 20. "After midnight on the fifth of July, all of the fireworks are illegal in Kootenai County," Miller said/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Would you like to see your North Idaho city outlaw fireworks altogether?
