I would like to submit a request to my fellow citizens of Fairfield.
So far, our city leaders have failed to allow us the personal legal use of fireworks to celebrate our Fourth of July. My neighbors and I would love to put together a little show for our grandkids and other children in our neighborhood. But as we strive to be law-abiding citizens and teach our kids proper behavior and respect for the law, we don’t do it.
Sure we have taken them to the shows, such as they are, with crowds and wind blowing away the displays. But we’re hoping to be allowed another option.
Many of you ignore the law, going ahead with your pyromania-like celebration anyway. I suppose you do so because it’s more fun for you and the kids than teaching them responsibility and then, oh yeah, there’s that nagging illegal part. I don’t know, maybe there probably haven’t been too many if any citations issued for that practice? Police Department: Please correct me if I’m wrong and support that with numbers. Thanks.
A lot of you probably buy those fireworks at the stands in Suisun City where their city has not only allowed their use, but welcomed those groups wanting to sell them. I like supporting Suisun City, but where is the justice here? Using our local decision-makers’ argument against other issues, you’re allowing them to have this product across the street, and then telling us it’s OK for them but not us?
This could be a political issue where Suisun City could lose revenue as we begin seeing stands in our city. That would be something our local leaders must work out. In the meantime, sorry, Suisun City, but I would ask every citizen of Fairfield first, don’t break the law in any manner, and second, don’t patronize the Suisun City or any other fireworks stands until we are allowed to use those fireworks here legally.
