Safety activists push for fireworks ban

Columbus, OH – This July 4th holiday, in backyards throughout the state, thousands of Ohioans will be lighting sparklers, snaps, snakes, and other devices that are legal to use here....and thousands will also be igniting firecrackers, bottle rockets, and other fireworks that are illegal to use here. If some safety activists get their way, it will be against the law to sell any of those items in Ohio. Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen files this report.
