Kary Duncan started this petition to UK Parliament

Our family who has three Border Terriers, one who is particularly scared of fireworks and 2 who are scared to a degree of them and a daughter who has severe autism who is absolutely petrified of fireworks and the last few weeks have been horrendous for her.  She is having hot sweats, palpitations, flushing, being agitated, lashing out, not sleeping or eating and wanting to go out and sit in the car as she feels that is her safe place.

The fireworks seem to be getting louder and louder every year and people don't seem to have any regards for others as to when they are setting them off so it is impossible sometimes to prepare yourself for them.

I call for the government to create a ban on the public sale of fireworks as this is the only way to stop the irresponsible people that are letting them off randomly and in the period before and after the 5th November.  Please stop and think about others especially Animals who cant tell us how they are feeling and people like my daughter who is non verbal autism and can tell me how scared she is.  I've never seen her like this at other times of the year only when its Firework Season.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and I would appreciate if you would take the time to sign the petition.
