You're a real sicko to even think that, much less say it here.

Oh brother... And I think of what they mean to ME: smoke, noise pollution and an all around nerve wracking experience for the animals and for anyone not mesmerized them... By the way, those SO are not bombs bursting in air...

@Anonymous032819  ...... I believe a little while ago you said you called the police on one of your neighbors. Are these kids related to that neighbor?

@stevieb, beat me to the punch. Patriotic? Oh, for goodness' sake. My daughter just managed to escape serious injury from fireworks that landed on her when she was a little girl.

 

If you want to see fireworks, go to a sanctioned show. Period. I'm glad that are illegal to sell or use in my town, but that doesn't stop the yahoos. We also get the lovely gunshots, too. So endearingly macho.

Re: I Already Have Idiots Setting Off Fireworks

@Anonymous032819 —I feel so sorry for you. I have very bad memories of past summers (especially July 4th). Fortunately, our neighborhood has been a lot quieter, but I still hate fireworks. There are better ways for kids to blow off steam. Are there any neighborhoods in this country that doesn’t have this problem? I wish I knew. Stay safe.LadyAlice (from NJ)

Where I lived  years ago, people set off fireworks year-round. Not fun!

Re: I Already Have Idiots Setting Off Fireworks

I was just thinking....how many days till the darn fireworks.  It's the fools that make all the noise they can, days before and days after when they need to.  It's not the fireworks or the holiday doing it, it's those who just press their luck on that!

A few years ago, neighbors requested very publicly that people not shoot off fireworks in respect to the Veterans who suffer from PTSD.  The yahoos set them off anyway.

 

Such patriots.

So sorry to hear this...and those firecrackers are a real problem for pets....

 

There are usually special ceremonies, but NO fireworks here for Memorial Day. Our peak firework times are 4th of July and New Year's Eve....There have been so many complaints, that our city  set up a special phone number and police task force to handle them all  (fireworks are illegal inside city limits).

@SPURT  That's the first time I've heard of that (special phone number) -  That's great! 👍  Without specifics, what part of the country do you live?

 

You are So right about how it affects our pets, and even the wildlife, around those fireworks!  If it were just ME, I wouldn't be as bothered, but my dog shakes violently and his panting is so intense. We even purchased (years ago) a 'Thunder Jacket' for him, but it doesn't help. We put him in the powder room with one of his beds as it's in the center of the first floor and there are no windows - just trying to find the quietest locale.

@January121   God has nothing to do with your remark.

 

You hate "these kids"; wish they get hurt "really bad"; seems you really are not looking for any forgiveness because you wouldn't have said what you just said.

 

Prefacing such a remark with "God forgive me" is just trying to smooth out a really vicious remark-and soul.
