Revision of Ohio Consumer fireworks Laws sign now

Hello my fellow Ohioans and fellow Americans:

Thank you for taking the time to review this petition for change of the Ohio consumer fireworks laws. Ohio currently bans all types of fireworks, except novelty types (sparklers,poppers, etc). Ohio does however allow the sale of fireworks if the buyer agrees to take them out of the state within 48 hrs. As we know this doesn't always happen, and on the 4th of July and New Years you can see all kinds of fireworks going off and being enjoyed. Its time for a change and our state Representatives agree, so lets try to make a change for the better. Fireworks are legal and used safely in 39 states, lets make Ohio the 40th state.

Quotes from Vindy.com

"Ohios fireworks law is utterly ridiculous and makes liars out of all of us, said state Rep. Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th"

"I object to making our citizens liars, Rep. Thomas Letson of Warren, D-64th said of falsely signing a form to have the fireworks out of the state within 48 hours of purchasing them."

"We should revisit this law, Boccieri added. As long as [the fireworks are] safe, it should be legalized. Sen. John Boccieri of New Middletown, D-33rd say the General Assembly needs to consider legalizing consumer fireworks next year."

Help us make a difference and please sign.

Thank you

    I'm a veteran of our country and would like to celebrate our independence with more that just sparklers and smoke. I have been stationed in multiple states that allow the use of fireworks and I think Ohio should change it's stance. What good does it do an

    It's all about our independence. And we celebrate it with fireworks. Why should the idiots and those who let their kids play with fireworks, (those are the ones that get hurt) ruin it for the rest of us? God Bless America!

    The laws just make no sense. The 4th of July is a celebration and they try to take the celebrating out of it. I mean come on sure they allow sparklers and smoke bombs but those thing aren't fun unless your 5. It a shame they will send us to war but not le

    It's WAY past time that this is changed. How hippocritical is it that you can BUY fireworks but not USE them??? Let's change this and give the police a break on July 4th!!
