Just one week away from the day that America will celebrate her independence, NY Mayor Bloomberg makes an attempt to save us from ourselves. Apparently, he is going to urge Gov. Cuomo to veto the legislation that would allow for the sale of sparklers outside of the city, because the devices could easily be used by terrorists to build a bomb.

The mayor’s state legislative director, Joseph Garba stated in a memo. “While this bill excludes New York City, legalizing these devices everywhere else in the state would, as a practical matter, have the same effect in the five boroughs… A recent attempt to harm innocent lives provides a frightening example of how legally purchased . . . fireworks can cause dramatic harm and even kill.”

Well, I guess it’s a good thing that sparklers can easily be made at home.
