Let voters consider banning fireworks


In response to “Douse Florida fireworks bill” (Our Views, Dec. 30):

The waiver people sign promising that fireworks will only be used to scare away birds is a joke.

Fish hatcheries and farmers who need to protect their crops use air cannons. The cannons are on a timer to go off at set times during daylight hours.

It’s time to let the people of Florida vote on banning the sale and use of fireworks.

Professional pyrotechnic companies should be exempt from any new law.
