Chinese lanterns need to be made illegal

Fireworks, especially chinese lanterns need to be made illegal. When other folks start finding these “harmless” chinese lanterns burned into their home maybe the truth of just how dangerous they are will begin to sink in.

Yes people have the right to celebrate the 4th of July however the right to indiscriminately endanger other peoples homes does not exist.

Use some common sense!

I’m not talking in metaphor I’m talking about finding a chinese lantern burned to the side of my home after the 4th. Having lost one home to fire I’d really rather not lose another one to someone’s “celebration.”
