Fireworks should not be banned

Extracts from this document...


Fireworks are dangerous ~ Its time for a total ban. While dangerous if in the wrong hands, fireworks are still safer than many other things we all use in our daily lives and, therefore, should not be banned. According to hospital records, children at the ages of 5 to 14 uses only nine out of every 100,000 emergency room treatments are caused by fireworks. Even pens and pencils cause more injuries and they use 35 out of every 100,000. One of the arguments for the ban on fireworks is that they are frightening to animals. Cindy Phillips, a veterinarian says, "I have dogs and cats which are being rushed in and my office that have been terrorized and terrified by a constant flow of fireworks all year long in the area.

I hope you now realize that fireworks aren't to blame. The blame should be put on all of the ignorant people who gave fireworks its name of being dangerous. There are ways to keep fireworks out of the hands of these people and I have given you a few ideas on how to do that. Now all we need to do is take action and let our ideas be heard. I cannot do that by myself. I need your help to keep fireworks legal. This is an important matter and all should be concerned about it. We should write to who ever is involved with running our country and tell them how we feel about this issue. Surely that will get their attention? ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
