Is it not time we had the right to purchase Fireworks?

Its November 5th and across the Irish sea all over Great Britain people are heading out to watch Firework displays.

Some children wait for mummy and daddy to pull out the big box of fireworks that they purchased at the weekend in the local Asda for a few pounds and watch in amazement as the sky lights up across the neighbourhood.

Every year for the past many decades the British population have enjoyed the delight that Fireworks bring to all, all around the world cultures use fireworks to highlight amazing sporting events and celebrations.

In Ireland it would seem that we are too thick and stupid to be allowed to use fireworks and for our own safety they are banned and made illegal for us normal day to day folk to purchase.

How sad is our country?

Surely its time that the people of Ireland were allowed the same rights as those in the UK to be able to purchase fireworks. Why cant we celebrate Haloween with fireworks displays? Why cant we celebrate the New Year with Fireworks displays?

How many of us sit around the TV on New Years Eve watching Big Ben sound in the new year to Fireworks? Wouldnt it be great if we could do the same too, Firework displays all over Ireland?

Yes we can use the argument that local scum will get the fireworks and get upto all sorts of tricks with them, but the local scum appear to get their hands on fireworks anyhow, and if the UK can handle a few local yobs playing with fireworks surely we can?

Its high time the right to fireworks for people in Ireland was allowed, we are adults and we should be given the same rights as our fellow European neighbours, we would also see a benefit to the economy as people purchased fireworks for displays and festivals and home events.

Equal rights to fireworks.

At the moment we have drink, drugs, suicide, speeding to shuffle off the coil, we don't need another method.

Once they came in and everyone starting enjoying them - they would only be taxed to the hilt like fags and drink. Best left to a few sparklers.

Wait till SF get in as they have access to a load of cheap stuff they are looking to get off their hands

Because people like you would be able to get them and then where would we be?:shock2:
drummed that is hardly an argument.

I have used fireworks many a time, they are safe if used correctly.

Why should Irish people be denied the same rights as those acrosss Europe and denied the enjoyment of fireworks?

There isnt any good reason not too, but there are plenty of reasons that we should be allowed access to them.

there are too many laws, nothing wrong with fireworks they should be legal and the Gardai should enforce the laws against illegal bonfires instead of sitting in the station ordering Dominos

I can,

I could also drive up North.

But why cant I have the same right this Dec 31st to purchase fireworks and celebrate 2013 just as everyone in the UK can?

Why do you imagine you have some god given right to fire small explosives around your neighbourhood? Do your neighbours have the right not to have you do this? What are the reasons you suggest people should be allowed to access them? Does having fireworks benefit society? How?

Only good thing about fireworks is their Darwinian function in removing assorted limbs and eyes from scum every Hallow'en, thus making them less effective predators.

Its a firework hammer.

Many people manage to make a small explosive in this country regardless of firework bans. We are not about to create a new IRA because they have access to fireworks!

The benefits are this,

It gives families something to enjoy, god forbid.

It boosts the local economy by people purchasing fireworks and other items such as BBQ`s etc.

Local towns and villages can charge entrance fees for displays.

It makes people feel good and have a good time.


So far in this thread I have seen plenty of misery old bastards who are hell bent on people not having a good time, thats it the only argument they have. Plenty of good reasons to be allowed to have them but only misery as the argument against.

The law of economics states that if you want something hard enough, you'll get them. In this case, drive across the border and be prepared for the consequences of smuggling in illegal products.
