July is almost here and with it comes fun and fireworks … and with fireworks comes a catch, that pesky little thing that can ruin everybody’s fun – the LAW! Now, all things fun are generally dangerous and sometimes even illegal, including but not limited to: running with a lollipop in your mouth, swimming after eating, boiling water in a paper cup, licking a 9 volt battery and spending an hour driving around town …while blindfolded. So let’s talk about fireworks! Everybody loves them. Women love them because of the pretty colors, men love them because, well … they get to blow stuff up. A lot of people have questions on what’s legal and what’s not, so let’s set the record straight.

I suppose the easiest way to tell the legal vs. illegal fireworks apart is to shoot ’em off and see if the police come. But do we really want the police to come and spoil our party with all those silly little rules? Of course not. Let me give you the skinny on fireworks and save you a visit from “The Man.” Funny Firework shirt, Just Here To Bang 4th of July. The basics are … if it explodes, goes boom or bang, shoots up in the air, flies, leaves the ground in any manner, or spins … it’s illegal. Yup … spinning tires and spinning fireworks, both illegal. The spin cycle on the washing machine … totally legal, unless you’re sitting in that washing machine spinning around with a firecracker in your hand.
What does this mean to you? Well it means you’ll likely break your washing machine and probably burn your house down in the process. Oh, and it also means that all of those fireworks that you went and got at South of the Border are a big fat “Illegal.” Firecrackers, Roman Candles, Jumping Jacks, Blooming Flowers, Black Cats and Bottle Rockets … not to mention mortars that shoot to Mars are illegal to use, sell or possess in North Carolina.
