Do you think the city of Lawrence should ban fireworks?
Asked at Borders on September 13, 2002
“Yes, I think they should ban fireworks because they’re dangerous. People don’t take the precautions.”
“No, as long as they are used responsibly. You have to watch kids and how old they are and what fireworks they have, but they should definitely be legal.”
“I would say yes, for safety reasons and for health reasons. The city has a great fireworks show if you want to see fireworks.”
“Not the big shows, but I don’t think individual people should set off fireworks. They could set a house on fire. It’s dangerous for children, who often don’t have supervision.”
