Police, firefighters hand out 135 fireworks tickets, one man arrested | Local & Regional | KATU.com - Portland News, Sports, Traffic Weather and Breaking News - Portland, Oregon From the article: Rant: i really want to get the fireworks ban lifted in oregon... nobody follows the law anyway and life has some inherent risk. People get DUI's and crash their cars but alcohol and cars are perfectly legal. petitions, letters to senators etc...? ideas? are there really that many people that support the fireworks ban? and, how can they take the law seriously when looking at the skyline blooming with thousands of "illegal" mortars lighting up the night?
