    His fireworks logic is similar to mask wearing logic. “A thin piece of cloth worn loosely around the nose and mouth inconsistently by the public and people who espouse their use will prevent a microscopic contagion”

    I really don’t understand why people are getting charged and arrested for lighting off some fireworks. Granted, yes they are dangerous and yes people do get hurt every year due to the use of firework. But if they are begin setoff in manner that is safe and by adult. I don’t see the harm. I mean 2020 has been bad already. I think people should have fun celebrate somewhat. I’m sry this is just I How I Feel. Just my opinion.
