Stop the private sale of fireworks in Scotland.

Again, another night of horror as Guy Fawkes reared his ugly head and the people celebrated in his memory by letting off fireworks in their thousands. 

How can any country justify the use and misuse of this event. How can any government stand by and allow it's citizens to terrorise and disrupt cities and countryside alike. It's wildlife petrified. 

Animals are terrified and stressed, often unable to use the toilet for12 hours and more as they are too terrified to go out. Vets having to prescribe diazepam and all because of fireworks. Totally shameful and disgusting. 

It's not just animals, what about the person with autism, the elderly with dementia frantic at the loud noises and unsure what is going on, the war veterans suffering post traumatic stress. The bangs and booms bringing stark reminders of one of the most stressful times in their lives. Not to mention the toll on the fire service. 

This scenario every year is more like a war zone than a firework display. It isn't just one night of the year either, it goes on for weeks before and after the 5th of November. Enough is enough. 

It was once said that you can judge a country by the way it treats it's animals. How will the world judge Scotland. We have a beautiful and progressive country, so let's lead the way and ban the sale of fireworks, or at the very least use silent ones.
