Burn Dummies But No Firecrackers

Do to a new law, this New Year’s Eve we can continue with our custom of burning dummies on the street BUT we will not be able to use firecrackers, as firecrackers are considered fire weapons.

The police department has started to look and capture producers and sellers of firecrackers. Although, they have not mentioned anything about buyers, the punishment for “HAVING, selling or producing” this deadly weapons without permit may be many from 3 to 5 years of jail without bail and a fine ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 USD.

Quemar Muñecos, Pero No Fuegos Artificiales

Debido a una nueva ley, este fin de año podremos mantener nuestra costumbre de quemar el Viejo en la calle PERO sin fuegos artificiales, debido a que los últimos son considerados como armas de fuego.

La Policia ha empezado una campaña para buscar y capturar a quienes producen y comercializan fuegos artificiales. Pese a que no se han pronunciado respecto a los compradores, la ley penaliza a quienes “POSEAN, comercialicen o produzcan” éstos con cárcel de 3 a 5 años sin derecho de fianza y una multa entre 1,000 y 3,000 dólares.
