Bottle Rocket Sales Ban Will Stay in ND

Posted: Updated:

 

North Dakota's Senate has shot down a measure to allow bottle rocket sales in the state.

 

People hoping to buy bottle rockets in North Dakota for the 4th of July are out of luck again.  North Dakota's Senate has shot down a measure to resume bottle rocket sales in the state.

The Senate voted 29-17 on Tuesday to keep the 4-year-old ban in place.

Eye doctors prompted the Legislature to ban bottle rocket sales in 2009, saying the fireworks cause eye injuries. An effort to overturn the ban also failed in 2011.

The current law still allows people to possess and shoot off bottle rockets, but businesses in North Dakota can't sell them.
