Rejected petition Ban all sales of fireworks to anyone not an authorised organiser.

I am calling for the government to ban all sales of fireworks to the general public. Only qualified and registered pyrotechnics organisers should be able to access and use them due to the abhorrent misuse of fireworks by young people.

More details

There are many more examples of reckless use of fireworks and despite the law stating that anyone under 18 are not allowed to buy them far too many are bought by adults then given to young people. This needs to stop and will only stop if you the government ban all sales of fireworks unless to authorised and licenced organisers.
