why should people with pets have to suffer the imense inconvienience ensurring they are not unduly stressed. also farm and wild animals will suffer also.
is it time they are baned, only to be used on the 5th not weeks before and after?

They shouldn't ban them completely, they should just allow them on Bonfire night and New year! This way it is fair, and its not just animals that they affect its also the Fire departments, the hospitals due to stupid and imature people playing with fireworks thinking this is fun and then ending up hurting themselves or other people... Also it affects the air which we breathe!!! all them fumes, surely that aint good.

But I think it owuld be unfair to Ban them completely!!! I like them ha ha BOOOOOOOOM!

The only people who should have them are the local authority, and they should run the displays

Yes......great idea! Anything else we can ban whilst we're at it? No, don't suppose there is....we've just about got everything covered.

Phill it's not a case of banning fireworks but stricter controls to stop the mindless idiots who let them off for no other reason but to cause annoyance at all hours of the day. I don't know what its like where you live but it is a regular thing in my area, for instance we had two lads of about 15years of age throwing fireworks into people's gardens only last Sunday afternoon. I have no objection to fireworks, in fact I like to see a good display, but it's the fools who spoil it that I would like to see stopped.

Our local Scout hut had an arson attack on
Saturday 14th.Wood was pulled off the building and fireworks was pushed in then set alight.The fire has wrecked the building and left not only Scouts,Brownies and alot of other local organisations homeless.It seems every year we hear of children,adults,animals and property getting burnt.Do you think its time for fireworks only to be sold for organised displays?

Those who oppose a ban miss the point. They have restrictions but people blatantly flaunt them & the innocent people, pets or emergency services are the victims. They have restrictions on how late they can be used, when they can be sold yet nobody has abided by this. Can any of you say honestly that you don't know any neighbour or family member that hasn't broken these rules? They need to be banned and the local authority can monitor them. It has worked like this in Australia for nearly 20 years.
