The move to legalize fireworks in more states.

Good news in the USA!

It's looking better and better for firework enthusiasts in more states as legislaters are pushing bills to legalize fireworks, at least at some level! Fireworks are responsibe for some of the fondest memories for many of us from our youth, and today in the United States millions of Americans do not have the freedom to even light a sparkler to celebrate our Nations Birthday, much less fireworks for a wedding, birthday party, graduation or any other celebration...robbing them of some of the memories we take for granted in MOST states.

In the USA New Years eve and Memorial day are second and third behind the 4th of July in holidays celebrated with fireworks, and they are becoming more and more and more popular at weddings, graduations and retirement parties. Organizations like the National Council on Fireworks Safety and the National Fireworks Association are working hard to make sure fireworks are given a fair rap and fighting for re legalization of what once all states were free to enjoy.

Im most recent times Indiana firework lovers were given back full statewide use of aerial fireworks, and business is booming as well as the states tax benefits. Arizona is the most recent to follow the trend, with safe n sane fireworks becoming legal for sale again as of December 1st 2010. I talked to friends in Arizona that said "It was just a good feeling to drive through town and see the tents, it felt like something had been given back to us"

As of this writing, Massachusets, Maine and Rhode Island are all consideing legalization at some level, even if only safe n sane it's a good start! Even NY has a group working to get a bill on the table. With our low cost firework delivery service we're certainly rooting for the day when every US citizen has the choice to once again smell the smoke! If your one of the fortunate ones living in one of the many legal states we hope you'll browse our site and consider a purchase so we can continue to support the organizations fighting for legaization in every state...the way it used to be as depicted in the image below from the Saturday evening post in the 1950's
