Why this petition matters

Started by David McVea

People are using Fireworks irresponsibly letting them off almost any night of the year and as a result  terrifying pets and wildlife animals in the vicinity of them, I would like to see Fireworks being used under license and only by qualified responsible people for displays marking special occasions such as New Years Eve, Bonfire Night, Chinese New etc. etc. not just any random day or night.

There is also another problem, because they are on sale to almost anyone in any store you care to use, when an official special occasion passes, some big stores have 50% off sales to get rid of remaining stock thus fuelling the random letting off of fireworks.

There is also an element of completely irresponsible persons getting hold of them, I have personally witnessed kids firing them horizontally up streets which is obviously lethal.

I would also be concerned in these days of heightened terrorism fears that selling explosives to the general public is perhaps not the smartest thing our government should allow happen, these are my personal reasons for wanting the sale of fireworks to the general public banned, I hope you agree and sign this petition.
