Rejected petition Remove the 'war zone' sounds of fireworks sold & used in the UK.
It cannot be 'right' that people, either ex-Forces/Services or Refugees from war zones are subjected to sound effects of bombing.
It cannot be 'right' that people cannot tell what is the sound of 'fun' & what is the sound of 'fight'.
It cannot be 'right' that animal owners have to sedate their pets for weeks upon end, or put livestock into holding pens to avoid panic reactions, stampede, or death through stress; or wildlife to be subject to the same.
The pretty lights & displays are indeed 'pretty', and we would not deprive people of the beauty; but we DO ask that they NOT be accompanied by sounds that cannot be distinguished from bombs and missiles. Fireworks ARE 'explosions' but need not sound like ever noiser weapons.
