Wonder why fireworks are illegal?

Man loses part of leg in fireworks accident

Police said a man lost part of his leg when fireworks exploded inside his truck while he was parked outside a Riverside bar early July 4.

According to a police report, the 3 a.m. blast outside The Christy Club on Valley Street was so strong it blew out the windows of the man’s red Nissan SUV.

Let’s parse that out again. Fireworks. A bar. Three A.M.

Is there an outcome involving those three elements that does not invite disaster?

    One can almost infer the element of idiocy was also somehow involved, can’t one?
