Should fireworks be banned in residential areas? Use evidence to support your argument.

There is an ever growing movement that suggests that people shouldn’t be allowed to use fireworks or firecrackers in residential areas for risk of fire, respecting those with war related PTSD, and being mindful of those who have auditory sensitivities. In some places, they also say that the sound is so disturbing to dogs that they can harm themselves in an attempt to escape the sound and that the day after new year’s and the 4th of July have more reported pets missing than any other days of the year.

What is your position on using fireworks and firecrackers in residential areas? Should they be banned to public spaces only? Should they be allowed?

Support your position by citing a source and using evidence.

*CHALLENGE*

When you have finished writing your argument, revisit it. Find a source that supports the opposing view and write an argument that supports that view.
