Ban the Boom, Boom!

LETTER

Re: Uncontrolled fireworks.

I have put in several letters before on this matter — at last others are starting to care too. We have an old dog and I would say this year the uncontrolled fireworks we will get might almost kill him, as he gets that stressed and starts fitting.

I remember fireworks as a nice, peaceful event with Roman candles, sparklers and such — not these bloody house-shaking things we have now going off at 3am. I’m sure it’s the noise that attracts these people to waste their money as they know it upsets a lot of people.

I believe Australia has banned them and only certified people in a controlled environment are able to let them off.

Ban. Ban. Ban.
