Noting that the Antelope Valley looks like a ``war zone'' on July Fourth from people shooting off skyrockets and other illegal imports from outside California, Smith proposed making it a misdemeanor to ``aid and abet'' illegal fireworks displays -- just as police can cite spectators at illegal street races.
The City Council decided Wednesday night against placing a fireworks measure on the ballot, agreeing with representatives of civic organizations that operate fireworks booths every July 4 holiday period that such a ban does nothing to address what they called the real problem: people shooting off skyrockets and other illegal imports from outside California.
