4% A bill approved by both houses of the New York legislature would permit the sale of sparklers at Fourth of July and at New Year's. Sparklers, considered a novelty type of fireworks, are handheld and ground based products that, when lit, emit a shower of sparks. Supporters say that the product is safe, when used as directed, and that government is overreaching in trying to prohibit their sale. Opponents think sparklers are dangerous and can lead to injuries. Do you support or oppose the sale of sparklers during the holidays in New York?
