You may have seen the news article that the ACT Government is crackering down on fireworks being used after the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend. This begs the obvious question:
Are fireworks legal in Canberra?
I asked an imaginary friend of mine for their opinion, and this was the response:
“Yeah, it breaks down like this, okay, it’s legal to buy them, it’s legal to own them, and if you’re the proprietor of a fireworks company, it’s legal to sell them. It’s legal to carry them, but but, that doesn’t matter, because… get a load of this, alright, if you get stopped by a cop in Canberra, it’s illegal for them to search you. I mean, that’s the right the cops in Canberra DON’T have.”
You can imagine my response: “Oh man, I’m going, that’s all it is to it, I’m freakin going.”
