Keep fireworks in Michigan legal

We want the Michigan legislation and the Governor to keep fireworks in Michigan legal and to keep the Fireworks Safety Act 256 of 2011.

Why is this important?

When the Michigan Legislature passed and Governor Snyder signed the Fireworks Safety Act of 2011, their goal was to increase revenue to the state of Michigan and to encourage citizens to buy consumer fireworks in Michigan rather than in neighboring states. Which it has achieved in doing. Fireworks are a fun activity that us as people should have the right to do. People are complaining and want this Act to be repealed, however that would not be fair to those who enjoy being allowed to purchase/sell/launch fireworks in the state of Michigan. Repealing this law would be the same as giving a car to your teenager and then taking it away because it isn't "safe". There are plenty worse things out there that should be repealed, but fireworks are not that bad. They are very entertaining. If anything, maybe just make the laws a little strict.
