Please limit fireworks use to July 4 only

To The Editor:

In California, all fireworks that explode, shoot into the air or move along the ground are officially called "dangerous," and therefore are illegal to possess anywhere in the state.

First offense for those who do not comply is a $1,250 fine.

So, we in Tennessee are able to celebrate our independence by using fireworks; however, I would like to see everyone limit their celebration to the Fourth of July. Every year at the time of this holiday, we hear loud booms days before and days after. 

There are veterans living in Bradley County who are troubled when they hear these sounds. There are also young parents with infants; elderly people; and pets that run away in fright because of these noises.

Before more laws have to be made to infringe on our  independence, please consider celebrating only on July 4.
