I dislike fireworks. I prefer family and picnic, not fire and panic. I am glad they are not legal in Lawrence. I have friends that live on the edge of town and rude people go and shoot off their bangs with no regard for the people who live there.

Crying because someone doesn't think the same way you do. It must be terrifying. I hope you crybabies don't set some one's home on fire. Of course that would just be an accident, You aren't responsible for what you do. I am glad fireworks aren't legal in Lawrence. I hope the lpd decides to enforce the law this year and not just for some people.

I don't care for fireworks that much either... but its only one day of the year and as long as they don't set anything on fire, let them have they're fun and no point in crying over it

Nothin' like sittin' out on a muggy Kansas night holdin' a sweatin' can of Bud Light and explodin' sh-t

Fireworks probably kill fewer people than "healthy" cigarettes.

The question should have included if you were going to buy fireworks this year. I hope the county bans fireworks next year. My pets cower for days around the 4th and New Years. There was so much smoke in the past you could not see across the yard. Hope they ticket all you law breakers.

My lab loves fireworks. She wants to retrieve them. Hence, locked away.

Py, you're taken, right?

I don't understand that Lawrence has a firework ban but people still seem to ignore the issue. I have a strong feeling probably by next year that they will probably not allow companies to sell firework inside Douglas county. But Lawrence, you keep doing your thing and ignore the law/

It's healthy civic disobedience. The people don't respect the law, so they don't follow it. Doing so on July 4 seems extremely appropriate.

pace 7 years, 4 months ago

People should call the police. It is not healthy disobedience, It is rude and it is not legal in Lawrence.

Randall Barnes 7 years, 4 months ago

for those of you who keep calling the police will you please stop.

KawValleyKid: I thought those Mega Snaps were great too; but just heard on the KC news today that a 11 year old girl was airflighted in critical condition when a box of them went off.
