Hoosier Hooligans, happily corrupting hapless Illinois hicks:
To shoot fireworks legally, a person must attend training at a local fire department and pass a safety and knowledge test. They must also apply for a site inspection by the fire department and apply for a permit issued by their local government.
William Weimer, vice president of Phantom Fireworks, said people from Illinois will continue to get fireworks in Indiana despite what the law says.
"People love fireworks," Weimer said. "If they can't get them legally, they will get them illegally."
There is an obvious solution. We just need to make those buying fireworks here sign a pledge promising not to take the them out of state to set them off.
