With: Larry Farnsworth, President Gavel Public Affairs

But when President Trump threatened to tag large penalties on $300 billion in Chinese imports earlier this month, a sense of panic settled over the fireworks industry. It had nowhere else to go. Johnny Starr and Ron the Banker talk with NFA Secretary, Steve Houser about the potential fallout and what you can do.
