    Anti-Candle group forms in Quincy (Video) : News : KHQA

    an anti-candle group is forming in a town in Quincy IL, across the river from where I live in Missouri. This is also the town I work in.

    Candles are dangerous don't you know!

    More and more house fires are started by burning candles.

    Can you get a CCCP (concealed carry candle premit)? I like to get one so that I could get grandfathered in before they band them altogether...

    I am a strong proponent of candle control. Assault candles are responsible for killing thousands of innocent children every year. Why does a regular civilian even need a candle. Sporting candles might be OK, but they should be limited to 10 lightings. Anything beyond that is obviously designed with a single intent: to KILL orphans and nuns and sweet little puppy dogs! Guns don't kill people...candles kill people.

    Carder said, "I left a candle burning in the bedroom and by the time I got back, the cat had knocked the candle into the clothes hamper.
    That's arson!!! That cat cat should be arrested and put away for nine lives so that this does not happen again.

    ban the candles - its for the children. require licenses and background checks to buy candles - it's the only way to be safe.

    That said, a stupid, ignorant, immature... person 5 apartments from me caused a fire that burned down mine. So I do have a beef with candles.

    There was a cat involved in that one too. I blame the owner, however for leaving the candle unattended - cat or no cat.

    You can't do that candles are protected as an individual right, not a collective right according to the ___ Amendement in the Bill of Rig.......

    If we let the Law Enforcement do this in this little town of Quincy then there would be MASSIVE hysteria. Can you imagine Fully decked out Swat teams with fire extenguishers conducting raids on lawful owners of candles. O my gosh what if they paint their fire extinguishers Black, and then what if civilians get a hold of a Black Fire extinguisher. O no I can't believe that a civilian would need a EBFE. I wonder what the entry team has, a firehose. Whats next MATCH Confiscation?

    However, If we do this ATF will get another letter. Now they will be the BATFEC. Hey if we find something else that they can attach to there name maybe we can get it to spell BATFECES or BAT FECES.

    I'm SO happy I've got enough on my plate so as to NOT apply myself to minding the business of others.

    Maybe I should help them out with a little common sense/time management training?

    Candles?!?

    Anti-candle group? That is hardly an enlightened approach to their problem. I think they have been burning the candle at both ends for too long.

    They've been burning something, but it probably isn't candles...

    I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the evil non-extinguishing candle! For just a couple of bucks, anyone can buy a whole box of candles that can't be blown out! There's no permit required, no background check, not even a training or age requirement! Any kid with a pocket full of change can get his/her hands on these deadly devices. Don't even get me started on what they can get from someplace like Spencer's!!!

    It's the sideways walking gnomes that cause the fires. Not the candles. Geez.
