“I think inner-city fireworks are not ideal. They pose a threat to the safety of the individual lighting them, if they’re not a professional. In its proper place, fireworks are amazing.”
“It depends on where they’re done. I appreciate it when they’re done in the proper places. … There’s always a destination that you can get to that’s close to your house that will allow you to view them.”
“ … I don’t really believe you should play with fire. One time when I was younger, I lit firecrackers into the middle of the street and it shot into our neighbor’s house and the tree next to it caught on fire. … I haven’t played with fireworks since.”
“I think that they shouldn’t be illegal. If people want to enjoy themselves and have fun that way, then it’s OK. It’s not a big thing. I did it when I was a kid.”
