From about noon on, you can see how busy police were on the 4th of July just dealing with alleged fireworks violations. What do you think about that?

All those fireworks "violations". So, lots of nosy homeowners were whining about loud booms that were interfering with their "quiet" 4th of July. The question is, how many of those complaints were for legitimate illegal fireworks, and how many were bogus complaints (as many legal fireworks can make loud noises) filed by people who just like to ruin other people's good times.

If San Bruno would stop selling the legal fireworks there would be a lot less illegal ones. My husband was working at the airport that night and he said you could literally see the sky lighting up from San Bruno on north but hardly anything south of San Bruno. My poor dog was hiding in a closet most of the night. I wish people would realize how hard it is on people's pets.

I totally agree Carol! I called the police last night to tell them that my neighbors were blowing off illegal fireworks right in front on my house (a $5,000 fine), but by the time they showed up they were done. My dog is totally freaked out and I have young children. I doesn't stop on July 4th or during the "legal" hours for the legal fireworks.

There will always be illegal fireworks. In areas where fireworks are not allowed, I'm sure illegal fireworks are still going on. I do feel sorry for the pets. The big "booms" scare me too. Especially when it wakes me late at night.
