Life is so interesting. So far I have been contacted by the US Coast Guard in regards to the video, and I mention this as there is a question about it, I shot. Yup. Not hiding anything or behind anyone. I shot and produced the video. There also seems to be a question about whether the fireworks in the video are legal. One's that are classified as explosives, as seen in the first section of the video, are. So for those of you who are questioning this, let me post the law right here for you.

Now this is just to get you started. These are the links for you to do your own research instead of just taking my word for it. Want to have some fun? Try sending a firecracker through the mail. See if you do not go to jail. Unless you hide it in the middle of something, your going to go to jail for it.
Try sending the firecracker through UPS or FedEx. You have a better chance of getting it through, but you still risk going to jail for it. Go to any of the web sites where they sell explosive fireworks. States that are good for this are South Carolina and Florida. They won't send them to you. It's illegal to send them into Virginia. Have any of you ever stopped at the fireworks stands here in Gloucester? They can't sell you nor do they carry fireworks that explode. Why? Because they are illegal. Another question that has come up, seems Scott is now mad as hell about this video and is not going to take it. Wait, did you see the video? He gave his permission for me to post the video and to show it to his boss. Now I must confess, I have no idea who his boss is so I sent the video link everywhere all the way up to Congressman Wittman's office.
I figured someone in higher positions would know who his boss was and get it to that person. Now I have nothing against the military at any level. I have shot plenty of video of the US Army bands, Air Force bands and the like and fully support them in fact these videos produce thousands of hits. Someone somewhere through my grapevine told me that some officials are calling the video, illegal. I spent 5 years as a right hand para legal to one of the top litigation attorney's in the nation in New York. I have a pretty darn good idea of what is legal and what isn't and I am not intimidated.
Let's go a step further. Let's declare every Friday night, fireworks night down at the Gloucester Point Beach. All explosive fireworks are highly encouraged. How long do you think it will be before there is an accident on the Coleman bridge and all kinds of people will be charged with all kinds of legal violations? Wait, there are officials in this county saying that the explosive type of fireworks seen in my video are legal. So why should there be any legal charges? It's common sense here folks. No explosive fireworks at the beach please. You will probably be arrested and charged. And for those officials making that claim? Please keep in mind that you never know who you are talking to in Gloucester and or who might be listening. I see and hear a lot more than you think. It does not make it on here, and let's keep it that way.
