But Pennsylvania residents can go to Ohio and buy all the fireworks they want and transport them legally back into PA. Not that I would condone that type of behavior

John Adams 1776 on Independence Day "I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations (fireworks), from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."

Here in Ohio, we can buy all the fireworks we want...from little inocuous stuff to some big mortar stuff. The hitch is that you have to sign a piece of paper stating that you are taking the stuff out of state, and you have to name the state. (Gate, we always say PA) Some places ask for ID and they photocopy your ID on the paper. Stupid, just plain stupid. It is illegal to set them off in Ohio, but you can buy all you want...

I can understand pyrotecnics being illegal in high wildfire areas, as that poses a huge risk to human life that is immediate and long term.

We set off a rather big fire that took 9 trucks and 3 dozers to contain at Ft. Hoot **Whistling looking around***

I did not realize so many other states had such stiff fireworks restrictions. Bummerooni.

In CA it is a "county by county" thing. But LA has some pretty sensitive sensors that nail down locations pretty fast.

This is crazy, but there is way to buy in PA if you live in PA. If you can get a city(or town, village, borough, municipality) official to sign a form saying the fireworks are for legal purposes, or something like that, then you can buy.

I know a guy, that knows a guy, that knows a guy that lives next door to a small town mayor. I'm just sayin'

Hell here in Oregon they are nazi's with fireworks. Dive an hour and a half to two hours up to Tokeland Indian Res and you get all the big boomers, firecracker, nipser daisies, hoosker doos and hoosker dont's, (with or without the scooter stick), whistling bungholes, and kitty chasers. You name it they sell it.
