There are an amazing number of large fireworks stores located across Florida and the Southeast, all apparently able to stay in business year-round based on this loophole (?) --- As we drove back to Florida from Atlanta today, we passed at least 6-8 fireworks stores, each of which had an average of 10 cars ... all ostensibly driven by farmers with bird problems (or railroad builders). - Happy New Year!

But, of course, sparklers, fountains and other legal, ground-based, non-airborne fireworks are NOT the fireworks of choice for the "idiots with fireworks" referenced by the OP. That's like injecting the fact that 'squirt guns' are legal, in the midst of a 'gun-control discussion.'

Yes but fountain fireworks can make just as much noise as other illegal fireworks. I have several neighbors who call the cops on everyone using fireworks, legal or not. They're all elderly NYers. Apparently in NY even sparklers are illegal and they assume everything firework related here is just like NY. I'm just doing my part to remind folks that there are plenty of fireworks that are both loud and fully legal in Florida.
