Fireworks training, ATF style

Good thing I wasn't drinking coffee when I read this. Here's the skinny:

A live fireworks demonstration was put on Wednesday by the Council of Governments Fire Chief's Committee, the D.C. Fire and EMS Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The demonstration at the D.C. Fire and EMS Training Academy was intended to show citizens that fireworks should only be used by trained professionals.

What's next on the ATF's list of things that they consider dangerous, and that only they are "authorized," "competent" or "trained" to do? Driving? Body boarding? Jumprope?

Please, save us from ourselves!
