Police warn public "NOT TO SET OFF FIREWORKS"

July 4, 2004

Albany -- Police are warning Georgians "not to even think" about setting off fireworks or shooting fire arms in the air this Fourth of July.

Police say regardless of the time of year -- discharging firearms or fireworks into the air in Georgia is illegal.

Officers will be in full force stopping those who chose to break the law.

"Basically anything that you have to light or that generates motion or flies through the air or explodes --it's illegal to posses,"says Sgt. Joe Moored of the APD.

If someone is injured because of your fireworks or falling bullets from your gun, you could be sued and held liable for their injures or death.
