Legal Fireworks

There are so many different kinds of pyrotechnic items from aerial fireworks such as artillery shells, Roman candles and sky rockets to ground items such as fountains, snakes and spinners. There are even lots of low-level fireworks, often called “novelties” that are always a hit with folks of all ages. With all these types of fireworks, there may even be a larger number of laws regulating the use of fireworks. For the most part, with the exception of two states (Hawaii and Nevada), the state sets the law for the use of legal fireworks. However, within each state, county, city and even neighborhood association legal fireworks may be regulated to a stricter degree.

For example, a few states in the U.S. outlaw consumer fireworks all together while about twenty states only allow lower-level legal fireworks or those that are considered novelties. Twenty one states including Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Washington, Wyoming and Pennsylvania allow the sale of most consumer fireworks to residents, although there always seems to be more prohibitive exemptions at the local level as mentioned earlier.

If a state does allow legal fireworks for sale, they may be purchased either year-round or during limited times of the year depending on the state law. Typically, those legal fireworks sold for a limited time are scheduled for sale right before the Fourth of July and New Year’s Eve. Many times firework enthusiasts who live in a restricted state will drive across state lines just to purchase their favorite fireworks legally. Legal fireworks may also be bought on many Native American reservations. Often the Native American community has made a business out of selling legal fireworks to the passing through consumer. Even if the state does not allow legal fireworks, the reservation land is exempt from all state and local regulation.

Here is another option to buy legal fireworks is from an online site such as All Sparks Fireworks. Here you can purchase fireworks of every type, at any time of the year, from any place in the country without any of the troubles of travel. In fact, when you purchase legal fireworks online, they will be straight to your home. However, it is still your responsibility to store and set off these fireworks under the law set forth in your jurisdiction.
