Letter: Bottle rocket ban is about safety

A recent article in The Forum brought to my attention the North Dakota Legislature’s debate over banning of bottle rockets, and I think they should stay banned.

Why do we need bottle rockets anyway? People have been injured far too often. I have seen it happen. My father was lighting off a bottle rocket a couple of years ago. When he lit it, the rocket took off in the opposite direction into a crowd of family members. Now, instead of having your whole family startled, why not just ban these treacherous acts of fun?
