Fireworks merchants say wares are safe

April 25, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Local fireworks retailers say while it is indeed possible to make a bomb if you harvest enough gunpowder from certain fireworks, they don’t believe their wares are a threat to public safety.

A New Hampshire fireworks store has told the FBI that it sold $400 worth of fireworks in February to accused Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who reportedly used gunpowder from two "Lock and Load" re-loadable mortar kits to make the explosives that killed three people and wounded more than 180 others on April 15.
