Letter: Shorten window of public sales

Published:

 

You give a kid a candy bar and tell him he has to wait three days before he can eat it. Not going to happen. Fireworks are the adult candy bar. Once we get them we can't wait to use them. Nice people defy the law and the consideration of their neighbors and pets just to blow something up. What can be done about it? Probably not much. But we may want to think about shortening the window of opportunity between the selling process and the using process. Oh, and you may want to enforce fines on the abusers. Just a thought.
