New Jersey should defentitely allow people (over 18 or 21 years) to buy fireworks for New Year! Okey, I understand fireworks are very dangerous and kills hundreds of people every year, but it's people's responsable for themselves and their kids whether they want to buy/use fireworks, watching it or not.
Only New Jersey and few other states doesn't allow fireworks at all, while all other states does see and sell fireworks a week before New Year's Eve.

New Year's Eve without fireworks doesn't feel like New Year.
And not everybody could go to NYC to watch fireworks or to travel to other states that allows fireworks.
I'm from Europe and always seen fireworks for New Year, and last year since I moved to USA, was my first New Year's Eve without fireworks, and it sucked and didn't even feel like New Year... It felt like a regular day.
If you guys think I'm an idiot, I'm sorry but this is what I really think.
Well, I've seen fireworks for 4th of july, and we should see for New Year too!! At least the polices should show us fireworks if it's illegal for people to use them

If it was a yes or no question I would vote no because we have enuf stupid people blowing off there fingers and hands that we don't have to change the law.

Here in Florida they are sold all over all the time...even in the Food Stores here like Publix. You never here anything on the news about people getting hurt. They are so used to it down here maybe they no right from wrong and are careful. I guess it is no big deal here.

Fireworks on New Years would be great! Because I'd really love to have some nitwits making a lot of noise and waking me up. Plus the added bonus of them possiblility burning my house down kind of makes it a win win type thing.......

BTW they have a fireworks display on the Seaside Boardwalk on New Years eve.

Fireworks don't "kill" hundreds of people a year. If they did, there would be absolutely NO REASON WHATSOEVER to legalize them.

Fireworks DO hurt and maim hundreds of people a year, and that is a problem.

First, this is false. A slew of states don't allow fireworks. At all.

If you want fireworks so badly, it's really not that hard to get them.
