So MaryMagdalene didn't really "do his/her homework."   He/she was just pulling his/her accusations/complaints out of his/her a** -- as usual.

SCHENECTADY — In an effort to quiet the concerns of residents who are rattled by the barrage of late-night explosions, Schenectady County legislators on Tuesday night repealed the legal use of small fireworks.

The reversal of the 2015 decision, by a vote of 13-2, bans the sale and use of small fireworks like sparklers. The decision makes Schenectady County the first in the Capital Region to opted out of the state law that allows sparklers, party poppers and other small exploding devices.

Legislature Majority Leader Gary Hughes said lawmakers decided last month to revisit the issue because of a spike in fireworks-related emergency calls around Independence Day in the past two summer as well as complaints of excessively loud and long celebrations. At a recent public hearing on the issue, most county residents wanted the repeal.

"It's been an ongoing problem and concern," Hughes said. "It's a public safety concern because there have been some serious incidents including one in Yates Village where a home sustained some serious damage."

Brian McGarry and James Buhrmaster, the minority leader, were the only two in favor of allowing small fireworks to be sold and used in the county. McGarry compared the right to fireworks to that of the right to bear arms because it restricts the freedoms of law-abiding citizens.

"Restraining the use is illogical and not fair," McGarry argued. "It's not in the spirit of the Constitution."

Randy Pascarella, who introduced the repeal, said that he got a call from a constituent who said since small fireworks were allowed in the county, his happy dog has turned into a fearful dog who hides in the basement.

Karen Johnson said during the weeks leading up to the Fourth of July and afterwards, she can't get a good night's sleep with all the racket around her home.

"It's like a war zone," Johnson said. "If you call the police, they go out, but they can't find the people who are doing it. We created this problem, we should un-create it."

Two years ago, the newly enacted state law allowed counties to opt into a measure to legalize the small pyrotechnics. Many counties in the area opted in, including Saratoga, Rensselaer, Montgomery and Washington counties. On Tuesday, the Rensselaer County executive's office and County Legislature said there's no push to rescind the local fireworks law.

The problem in Schenectady County has been that most people thought all fireworks, including those that are launched and flare overhead were legal. This led to a spike of 911 calls which Hughes said law enforcement had difficulty handling.

"Based on what I know now, I have to vote to repeal the law," Hughes said. "It's an annoying and dangerous situation."

Unfortunately, those (Buhrmaster and McGarry) of rational thought and who routinely oppose the continued county government assault on our liberties are outnumbered by the entrenched, unaccountable, and unchallenged progressives.  Rather than restrict the freedoms of law-abiding citizens, those who violate the law should be held accountable.  If the limits that were in place regarding the type of fireworks that could be owned/used legally were not understood by some residents, additional communication was warranted.  The penalties for violating the law should have been increased and offenders should have been held accountable.  Instead, we have the all too common practice of 'punishing the masses for the sins of a few".  This is the easiest approach taken by those who are afraid to confront those in society who choose to disobey established law.

And, I don't accept the rationale that the situation was taxing the city law enforcement (police).  While it may be true that there were many who exceeded the legal limits, the enforcement of these "lifestyle" laws is important.  The more that citizens can disregard the law without accountability and repercussions, the greater the severity of their breaches.  

BTW, I heard "at the donut shop" that the progressives in the Schenectady County Legislature are discussing rendering the operation of motor vehicles in the county illegal because there are some who drive in the rain without having their headlights turned on.
