These fireworks stalls popping up all over beautiful Marion County require you to sign an affidavit stating that you intend to use the “illegal” fireworks for breeding or fish farming purposes, but this is to protect the booth operator. It does not exempt customers from the law. So it seems like your only recourse is your state representative or state senator. You can also attack a district commissioner to ask for a little help here.

Jeff, Dearly Beloved, and I are currently enrolled in the Civic Academy, where citizens get a glimpse into law enforcement. Yesterday, I asked a patrolman about fireworks. I told him that fireworks were illegal and that I was afraid of burning embers raining down on my roof, which is true. I have the same problem in my neighbourhood. I guess the key word here is “detainee.” To me, that means anyone who owns, but again, I`m not a lawyer. When reviewing the practice in the surrounding counties, some ministries appear to enforce the ban, others do not.
I don`t mind people celebrating, but it`s now a competition to see who can make the biggest explosion or the brightest air explosion. The used ammunition polluting my roof/yard the next morning is amazing. I`m amazed that my house didn`t catch fire. Do you have any suggestions on how to bring this problem down to a reasonable level if it is not completely stopped? I`m not a lawyer or judge, so I can`t interpret that, but I found on the Internet: “Florida State Statute 791.05 Seizure of Unlawful Fireworks – Every sheriff or his officer or other police officer shall seize, take away, remove or cause to be removed any inventory of fireworks or fuel offered for sale or suspended at the expense of the owner, stored or retained in violation of this Chapter. He told me that there is NO state law or county ordinance that prevents people from firing firecrackers, even those that fly over the air and explode. He said such complaints would be ignored unless there is currently a fire ban or the fireworks actually set something on fire. I repeated to him that fireworks are illegal in Florida and he repeated that there is NO state law or county regulation prohibiting the use of fireworks! As I understand it, the sale of such fireworks may be illegal, but shooting them is not. He said complaints about fireworks would not be dealt with on July 4 or New Year`s Eve unless there was a fire ban or something caught fire. And “viola” is rarely followed by an exclamation mark. It is a beautiful instrument, but not particularly dramatic that requires the use of exclamation marks.
