Is a firework safe just because it is considered ”sane”?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26798points) July 6th, 2014

The build up to July 4th, you hear the same thing every year, only use ”safe and sane” fireworks because getting caught with the big, loud stuff can get you ticketed. Can any firework be safe just because it is sane? What does that mean? Is a firework unsafe because it is ”insane”, what about unsafe ”sane” fireworks, which ones are those? Fireworks, or fireworks, if used the wrong way even a Sparkler can do damage.

I always thought ‘sane’ was a subjective term. I don’t think it’s possible to quantify sanity.

I can’t say I’ve ever hear fireworks referred to as “sane” . I live in a state where all fireworks are illegal but I always viewed it as, as long as you are taking proper safety precautions it’s not that big of a deal. Problem is most people don’t take said precautions.

I have never heard of fireworks being referred as “safe” or “sane”. There’s such as thing as using fireworks safely, but that’s a different matter altogether. The fireworks themselves aren’t safe.

Sparklers are the only ones I would consider relatively safe and sane. I live in a city that allows the sale of “safe and sane” fireworks. In fact, local charities use these sales to raise money.

I’ll take any insane ones you don’t want. I can assure you they will not be wasted.

I have an old signaling cannon or thunder mug. I would consider that kind of insane.
