Citing national security concerns and the war on terror, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg asked New York Gov. Michael Cuomo to ban the sale of children’s fireworks.
City officials worried that sparklers — handheld fireworks that emit colorful sparks and are often waved through the air by kids on the Fourth of July — could be used in terrorist attacks, according to The New York Post.
If kids have sparklers then the terrorists win??? WTF!
The last time I was in NYC it was 1989. I wish I hadn't been there then. Is there a more pathetic group of tittering old women outside of California than New Yorkers? You can't smoke a cigarette in NY, or buy a big gulp or do any number of "normal" activites because its illegal. That's right they actually threaten to throw people in jail for things like soda's and sparklers. May history forget that New York was ever part of the United States.
