Dude. You crack me up.
I witnessed a tree on fire near Kelly's Brew Pub on my way home about noon today.
I guess I'll voluntarily abstain from lighting any fireworks this year. (But I'll still insist on lighting a few smoke bombs!)
Some genius thought it was a good idea to light fireworks in the Bosque. Thankfully my friend Miguel had the wherewithal to notify the authorities as soon as he saw the flames, and they were able to put it out.
Many thanks to Miguel from saving us from more smoke and ash.
You have an interesting way of thinking. Someone does something that is already illegal (going into the Bosque, lighting fireworks ( and probably illegal ones)) and you want to solve the situation by creating laws that prevent people from selling legal and safe fireworks to law abiding citizens.I suppose you also think it would be a good idea to prevent vendors from selling matches and lighters because some idiot will go into the bosque and light a fire...Oh wait we already had that. Oh by the way have you bothered to really look into how the fires have gotten started... downed powerlines, hot exhausts, smoldering campfires, arsonists, and dead squirrels. The same suspects we have every year. No drought necessary.
