How big is the problem?

...and I quote, In 2006, eleven people died and an estimated 9,200 were treated in emergency departments for fireworks-related injuries in the United States(end quote). Out of 301,139,947? I bet more people died from choking on dry toast than 11 for fireworks incidents.

Love the post. It is not the responsible parties that is teh problem but the idiots.

But playin with fire is more dangerous than playin with toast.
