Rejected petition Ban the sale and use of bangers

We would like to ban the sale and the use of banger fireworks to the general public. Only bangers to be sold and used at an organised event on the 5th November.

More details

Bangers are going off all year round at all times of day. They are extremely loud and frighten a lot of the general public and 95% of Animals. Lots of Animals are killed by these bangers either through bolting off and getting killed by an RTA, or drowning in a river, or having heart attacks, panic attacks and seizures. People who suffer with PTSD, nerves, epilepsy etc also suffer to handle their condition when these loud bangers go off.
