  1. This is so very sad that young people are killing one another. I hear gun shots, but it is hard to distinguish those & that of fire works. Maybe Hammond should crack down on the time frame of fireworks being used. It scares the dogs, others just become accustomed to it. Residents behind me shoot off fireworks ALL YEAR, & AT ALL HOURS. Just a thought.
