Iowa legalizes fireworks for consumers, finally!
The number of states where fireworks are illegal continues to shrink as Iowa recently legalized consumer fireworks for sale to consumers. The state has been losing tax dollars to neighboring WI, MO and ND for decades. The State Fire Marshall’s office says more than 500 permits have been issued to sell fireworks statewide and urges consumers to use common sense, and follow label warnings and instructions when using fireworks. Iowa joins most recently GA in the legalization of consumer fireworks, where business is “booming” in the week before the 4th of July. The passing of the bill also gives Iowa consumers the option to legally buy fireworks online and have them shipped directly to their homes. US Fireworks reminds buyers that according to Consumer Product Safety Commissions statistics, most injuries are caused by small items such as sparklers, bottle rockets and firecrackers and in most cases by misuse.

Iowa Senate takes one step closer to legalize fireworks, met with opposition by Fire Marshal’s.
Over 80% of Iowa’s residents polled are in favor of legalizing fireworks in their state. The Fire Marshal’s Association released a statement in opposition including statistically incorrect data such as “consumer fireworks are dangerous to transport, and store”
Our searches have found ZERO accidents from transporting consumer fireworks in the last decade, Zero instances of fireworks magically igniting and ZERO injuries in the few storage facility fires that have occurred nationwide. There are MANY goods more dangerous than fireworks and it’s disappointing to see the association oppose something with little factual data to back their claims.

House bill 2852, or the fireworks bill has passed and changed the West Virginia firework laws making the sale of fireworks that are normally sold in Ohio and Kentucky now legal in West Virginia.
The state law legalizing the sale of additional fireworks takes effect Wednesday and revamps West Virginia Firework Laws, for the better for firework enthusiasts.
The bill, which unanimously passed the Senate and House of Delegates, aims to raise money for veterans and volunteer fire departments, but Mike Shank said some fireworks should be controlled by professionals.
