It's Time To Ban Fireworks

Postby E Dogg Capizzle on Mon 3/Nov/14 10:42am

Every year the poor people in the normally peaceful hamlet of Riccarton let of their fireworks and disturb my precious sleep. Ban them I say! Something should also be done to curb the sale of fireworks. Discuss. :hmmm:

The people who set them off while I was pooping last night should be sent to stewart island

The public displays are way way more awesome than any shitty backyard fireworks.

They'd better not ban sparklers though. Those things rock.

I believe that most backyard fireworks should be banned. Way happier with the large public displays.
Also would be happy to enable schools etc to have their own "fireworks night". Have a member of staff do a short course each year and designated the "safety police" running the explosions and taking some responsibility for H&S.

I think we should keep fireworks, but ban stupid people buying them.

Kept the kids up until 11 last night so they weren't the normal little angels this morning. Couldn't even see where it was coming from, so quite a few houses away. Are they getting louder or am I getting older and grumpier?

unfortunately sparklers are going to be the first to be the first to be banned as people can make sparkler bombs out of them.

Of course, while I support the ban I'll stock up big time this year.

I've always loved fireworks, but I 100% support a ban now that I have dogs and look after other peoples. This week is going to be nightmare. :(

fuck that. 1 in 1000 fireworks is replaced with gelignite or C4. I call it the safety lottery.

some you win (well 999) and some you lose 1. But you only lose if you are careless. Choose wisely.

I like this idea, as long as it is open to everyone, and then you can buy real fireworks.

the problem with the large public displays is that they are way to crowded (like a big concert without the comradery)

I remember the days of skyrockets on Petone beach, the whole beach was litup with them, it was better than the public display, but that could just be selective memory.
