How to tell if it was a gunshot or fireworks: gunshots don’t echo, fireworks do. 

thaNK YOU SO MUCH

the fact that anyone might commonly need to know this terrifies me

clearly you’re not from america

This just isn’t true.  I grew up in the ghetto.  Gunshots echo in the city, in the suburbs, and in the forest.  A gun with a silencer doesn’t echo, which may be what they were talking about.  Gunshots and fireworks sound a lot alike, but there’s a subtle difference.  Grow up in a dangerous area and you’ll learn the difference really fucking quickly.
