Never fly with fireworks (or anything even close to fireworks). Fireworks are considered explosive devices that could ignite mid-flight, and the TSA will confiscate them from any carry-ons or checked luggage.

As Johnny Jet writes, a firework in your carry-on will likely set off a secondary search, only delaying your time in security. Worse, if you manage to sneak one on a flight, you face a $75,000 fine per violation (and even the possibility of jail time).

According to a recent post on the TSA’s website, this includes all fireworks and firework novelty items, like “firecrackers, fountains, bottle rockets, ground spinners, poppers, snaps, roman candles, smoke fireworks, snakes, strobes, and sparklers.” Snaps and poppers are those familiar noisemakers you throw at the ground (and contain a small amount of explosive silver fulminate).

For the most part, it’s also illegal to ship or mail fireworks, even between states where they’re legal. For this reason, if you really, really want to set off some fireworks this fourth of July, buy them locally.
