I am nearly 79, and am afraid of noises. To have fireworks go off at 8.00 pm on Sunday 11th April ,I am assuming on Arabian Drive or there abouts. Jacinda has been amazing in her dealing with the pandemic, pity she doesn't care so much for the elderly, animals and parents who can't console there young children when on and off all year long this is happening. Many states in Australia have a ban, why not nz? And why celebrate someone hellmbent on committing a crime, not even in nz. Step up jacinda.

My dog is a rescue dog, and has previously been injured by people with guns. Even 1 firework bang leaves her trembling & in total fear & panic. She's instantly retraumatised and the whole family is affected taking turns sitting up with her.

1.Our dog barks endlessly for the many nights around anytime there Is fireworks. Its stressfull for everyone . Also other animals & people around the country are affected in a negayive way during these times.
2.Next Is the fire risks ; too many unnessary fires have been started so many times.
3. Injuries caused by uncaring use.
Its time to ban fireworks.If must to have some only let big events to have 2-5min fireworks display. But no private functions and public sales .

Fireworks sparks showered our house last night, and bits of fireworks litter our property this morning. They're incredibly dangerous, and the risk to people, property and animals is too great to allow private sales to continue. Please ban private sales!

The continuing sale and practise of this article should be prohibited from here on. It good for idiots, but not appreciated by those that care for house pets, it also at time causes grate harm to children.

Fireworks are needless stress to animals and an unnecessary danger to people.

You have to speak up for the voiceless who are the ones who ultimately suffer through the use of fireworks
