Rejected petition Ban fireworks in the UK except for licenced and authorised regulatory events.

Fireworks upset former soldiers who suffer from PTSD.
It upsets animals.
It increases the risk of harm and death.
Fireworks should be restricted to single day events which are licenced and prepared with Health and Safety paramount.

More details

Current regulations and sales are insufficient.
Bonfire night is a single night and yet we endure days and weeks of noise while the vulnerable are tortured for this duration.
Make it a special day not a week.
