I remember how popular fireworks were when it was first introduced in Trinidad. A few years ago, there was a lady on the news who complained very bitterly, how the noise of the fireworks was preventing her new born infant from sleeping. She also expressed a wish that fireworks and bursting bamboo should be banned. Are fireworks and bursting bamboo a nuisance to human beings and pets? Or is this a glorious way to celebrate a special occasion? Should the government ban fireworks and bursting bamboo? What do you think?
Never heard of bursting bamboo. Is this a common practice and how they do it? Generally, even though I love my peace, I have no problem with fireworks as long as it is handled by professionals and not the common Joe in the streets but it does bother me often because of my kids when they try to sleep.
Comments: Why isn't the government doing anything to enact or enforce laws from selling fireworks to just anyone? Only professionals should have it.
Why? Because the number one company who sells them is a "Big" Person in Trinidad who I am sure knows a lot of people, it is a huge profitable business. I am just holding my head about what is going to be like on Independence Day.
The fireworks needs to be banned. The scratch bombs are really bad. People need to be put in jail for this and set as an example so others won't do it.
When I hear those scratch bombs going off I become very angry and depressed. Angry because we live in a society that does nothing to stop people hurting people and depressed because besides ear muffs there is hardly anything I can do to console the tears of my autistic son who is sorely afraid of the terrible sound.
