Macon-Bibb Commissioner calls for change in fireworks law
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A Macon-Bibb commissioner is upset with the Georgia fireworks law.
District four representative Mallory Jones says it allows too much.
You can shoot fireworks off from 10 a.m. until midnight most days of the year.
The time extends to 2 a.m. for some holidays.
Jones calls the law “pure insanity” because people can’t control the noise.
“The fireworks of today are not like the fireworks when I was a kid,” said Jones. “They’re much more powerful and in fact the definition of them defines them as torpedoes or bombs. And that’s what they are, they’re loud and powerful and disrupting the peace and tranquility of neighborhoods.”
Jones sent a letter to two state legislators working to change the law.

He hopes other lawmakers will see his point of view.
