Much physical suffering on our part and that of our loved ones can be avoided if we heed the advice in those pages. I like to go back and review them regularly to see how well my operations are conforming to those recommendations.
But there is another very significant kind of pain and suffering we and our families may have to endure unless we pay attention to a different set of precautions as we embark on this new fireworking hobby.
Local governments such as counties, cities, and townships can adopt their own sets of laws governing explosives and their manufacture. They care about the laws and they care about whether or not we are complying with them. We could sit around for hours or Essay about fireworks days, debating this law or that one, which one is just or unjust.
The question is not whether the law is just or not, or whether or not I agree with the law. The question becomes a simple one: Is my family willing to suffer those consequences along with me?
Am I willing to ask them if they are willing to suffer those consequences. They have suffered imprisonment, high attorney fees, exorbitant fines, broken marriages, and loss of property. In the end a law is simple. If you are caught doing it you will suffer these consequences.
It simply states, such and such an action is illegal, and if you are caught doing it you may suffer this punishment. So, the choice then becomes simple. No disrespect to wimmen fireworkers, though.
How much should we invest in tools and a workshop if it turns out to be only a passing curiosity? If we progress in the fireworks hobby, our investment in it and in the tools and facility used for it, progresses along with it.
Our safety precautions usually end up tagging along a bit behind our activities.
As we make choices concerning our activities and whether or not they comply with those laws, it would be wise to become educated about the laws, the consequences of breaking them, and our responsibilities to ourselves and our loved ones.
Fortunately, US Federal law is pretty straightforward and simple when it comes to hobbyist fireworking. Page 64, Paragraph However, no person may ship, transport, cause to be transported, or receive explosive materials unless such person holds a license or permit.
Because no license is required by the BATFE, this storage might never be known about by them or inspected by them. But if a person is caught storing explosives without such compliant storage, the BATFE then has the right to prosecute that person.
And, typically, they do.
These are the cases you hear about in the news if the Feds are prosecuting somebody: This is another important point. While a person can make explosives for their own personal use, provided that they store them in a compliant manner, they may not transport them legally unless they have an ATF license or permit.
Things can change, and the laws are always up for re-evaluation. If in doubt, consult an attorney. Local and State Laws Covering Fireworks Manufacture It is impossible for me to even try to address the myriad of local and state laws governing the manufacture of fireworks.
Suffice it to say that the same sort of reasoning and responsibilities mentioned above with regard to federal laws, also pertain to state and local laws. The Consumer Products Safety Commission seems hell-bent on putting hobbyist fireworking and pyrotechnics supply houses out of business.
Compliant storage, as mentioned above and described in the following section, and a simple approved work-site, such as a picnic table, are necessary. A form must be filled out and a relatively small fee must be paid.WARNING AND DISCLAIMER: If you are underage, then consult with your parents or guardians before attempting any of this.

The Moral Equivalent of War William James Introduction. The war against war is going to be no holiday excursion or camping party. The military feelings are too deeply grounded to abdicate their place among our ideals until better substitutes are offered than the glory and shame that come to nations as well as to individuals from the ups and downs of politics and the vicissitudes of trade.
