The World Did Not End: Lancaster Holds July 4th Fireworks Party

The County of L.A. threatened to sue.  Guv Newsom came out of hiding to denounce the city of Lancaster for the temerity of celebrating July 4.  The Mayor and City Council of Lancaster told the Democrat/government cabal to stay out of our business.  So, the people of Lancaster had an old fashioned Fourth of July.  The rest of the State had three times the number of illegal firework complaints than every before.  Few, except for government, trusts or respect’s anything government says—every day we refuse to take the GUIDANCE (no laws to be broken) by Newsom and his attempt to imitate Fidel Castro.

“Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris defied a Los Angeles County public health order on July 4 that banned firework displays. He did so with the blessing of the City Council, which voted to move forward with the show during an emergency vote earlier that day.

“The city has considered all risks and feels confident in our ability to safely host a show,” Parris wrote on the city’s Facebook page. He said residents deserve the fireworks display “after a year of continuing challenges.”

The world did not end.  Again, the guidance from those using junk science proved to be down right silly.  Follow reason, not the guidance of corruption scam artists holding office.

Fireworks in Lancaster After Mayor Defies County’s Pyrotechnics Ban

California City News,  7/7/20  

Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris defied a Los Angeles County public health order on July 4 that banned firework displays. He did so with the blessing of the City Council, which voted to move forward with the show during an emergency vote earlier that day.

“The city has considered all risks and feels confident in our ability to safely host a show,” Parris wrote on the city’s Facebook page. He said residents deserve the fireworks display “after a year of continuing challenges.”

The health order was aimed at discouraging social gatherings, as California confronts a surge in coronavirus cases. But Parris believed it would have the opposite effect, fostering boredom and encouraging other avenues of socialization

Parris said he was willing to get arrested Saturday night if that’s what it took. There were no arrests. The show went on without incident.

According to CBS Los Angeles, the Board of Supervisors and the County Fire Department both said they would not take action against the show. Perhaps that has something to do with the large volume of fireworks on display Saturday night. Despite the county ban, incredible video from KCal 9 showed Los Angeles alight with illegal fireworks.

From face masks to beach closures and now fireworks, there has been a remarkable level of defiance against state and county public health orders. Americans are deeply divided today. State and local governments are too.

    Thank you Mayor Rex Parris for standing up!

  2. Thanks mayor. At least Mr Parris Didn’t have a winery that he needed to fight to keep open on the Fourth of July weekend. All other wineries in the state were closed except Gavin Newsom’s. How nice. I guess he doesn’t like competition either

  3. Otis Needleman says

    Everyone in that city needs to sign a Newsom recall petition ASAP.

  4. The left no longer has the consent of the governed…they never did.
