I agree that kids should be protected somehow from fireworks. Maybe having child protective services take them away from their abusive parents?
Does that sound reasonable Ian? maybe they can be sent to England to be properly raised there.
Forty plus years ago my father bought me a .22 caliber rifle for my eighth birthday present. And taught me to use it safely. Please do not make me go to England as I may not be able to drive a pickup while there and would come back with an ugly shirt But if I did that today with my eight year old I probably would be prosecuted.
