Letter: Damage from fireworks misuse will be on shoulders of salesman, commissioners

It’s hard to believe that our county commissioners would risk the lives of our citizens just to stay on the good side of someone in the business community. Shame on them.

When some drunk sets off the fireworks he legally bought and starts a forest fire, it will be your fault. When our homes burn and perhaps people die, not to say all the poor animals that will die, it will be your fault.

I don’t know if it’s possible to rescind this decision. If it can be changed, it should be. People will set off these fireworks even though it’s not legal. Just like people illegally drink and drive.

Since the commissioners have no common sense, all I can ask is that the owner of the fireworks stand do the right thing and close up until we get some rain. He claims to be a Christian. Well then, do the Christian thing and use more sense than the commissioners have shown. If he continues to sell fireworks then the damage and death that occurs will be on his shoulders.
