You know how when a person is told they cannot do something or they cannot have something, it makes them want to do it or have it even more? It applies to fireworks too. They look extremely fun to set off and we are sure they are, for the licensed professionals. However, they are also dangerous, quite a few people get injured every year playing with fireworks.
“Safe and Sane Fireworks” are legal to purchase and have at private July 4 celebrations. They can only be purchased during a short period each year: June 28th to July 6th.
“Dangerous Fireworks” are the fireworks you were probably really hoping for. These ones cannot be purchased for your own parties; these are reserved only for the large official shows.
Even with Safe and Sane Fireworks you need to play with caution. Obviously, be outside. Stay away from trees, bushes, and electrical lines. Follow the directions on the packaging and do not point them at others.
