So based on weight, you think it apropriately designated illegal?
Just because the "bomb squad" was called does not mean they neede to be called. People do like to justify their existence.
I designated it "illegal" because the stuff they were pictured taking out of his car looked like missile packs, which are the kind of stuff banned in LA County.
That's not even going into the assumption that the only people buying 200 pounds of "safe and sane" fireworks, per California definition, would be wholesalers because no one else wants that many damn snakes and sparklers.
