She's said it lots of times, and said it again Wednesday -- we must ban personal fireworks.

That's the message Californian columnist Lois Henry, who for years has advocated a switch to supporting professional shows, repeated on "First Look with Scott Cox."

"Ban all personal fireworks -- NOW," Henry said.

Henry said people complain about how much money charities will lose if they can't sell fireworks -- but how could that ever compare to someone losing their house to a wayward firework?

"Say what you will about Lois, she doesn't sugarcoat it," simulcast host Scott Cox said.

Henry also talked about the need to protect pets during the celebrations.
