Total ban on the sale of fireworks in New Zealand

Total ban on the sale of fireworks in New Zealand

Ban the sale of all fireworks to the general public in New Zealand. Firework displays may only be organised by Local Authorities.

Why is this important?

The safety of our children is paramount and yet year after year around early November we hear of horrendous accidents with children, animals and peoples property due to miss use of fireworks. Why do we continue to celebrate an overseas anniversary that turned into a disaster in the end. Furthermore, the animal Injuries and distress caused around this time is significant and totally unnecessary. IT NEEDS TO STOP NOW. IT HAS GONE ON FAR TOO LONG

How it will be delivered

Email straight to the Environmental Minister and associate ministers. If that doesn't work They have Snail mail.
Alternative will be to see my local MP and forward it through him

Reasons for signing

  • cruelty to animals , fire department over worked and under paid , loss of life and homes because people are idiots
  • Why do we sell explosives to the public to celebrate a failed overseas terrorist?
  • To keep all Pets safe.
