Rejected petition Ban the sale of fireworks to the public and only allow at organised events

Organised events would reduce the amount of risk of injury to the public which puts a strain on our already stretched services. This petition would also see a great reduction in the amount of days/nights that fireworks can go on for. Fireworks cause a great deal of stress to many animals too.
