Fireworks Gloves

A pair of gloves that keep your hands safe from firecrackers.

My neighbor creates his own fireworks and modifies other ones, not safe. So for his safety I thought of a pair of gloves that would come in large packages of firecrackers or sold sepretaly. They would be firecracker resistant, able to withstand a firecracker up to something like a M-80, so the people who don't have common sense can stay safe.

And sometimes others as well, or at least include some maiming and disfiguring.
  

       I have a cousin who lost 2 fingers to some "modified" fireworks. Too bad there are no "common sense" gloves.

       I have to fishbone this.... despite my obsessive affection for things pyrotechnic, anyone who behaves stupidly around such items richly deserves to lose numerous body parts, if not their life, "pour encourager les autres".

       Wearing gloves (and goggles) is an excellent idea.   

       I personally don't like to set off fireworks at all. Plus, it's illegal in my town.   

       I assume that gloves of adequate strength/material already exist. I don't know if including them with fireworks constitutes an invention.

       Definitely a [-]. Fireworks should be slightly dangerous - home-made ones doubly so. Safety goggles, gloves, comfortably-quiet fireworks...yeuch.

       From the title, I imagined fireworks coming out of the end of the fingers...

       Me too.   

       //so the people who don't have common sense can stay safe//   

       Thus allowing the foolhardy to propagate themselves? Good plan.
