This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government

Rejected petition Ban the sale of fireworks to the general public.

Restrict them to public events. Children have been hurt and maimed by fireworks falling into the wrong hands. Animals are terrified and sometimes hurt. There is no need to have everyone holding firework displays. An event open to the public is all that is needed. An organization should get a license
