People in my neighborhood complain every year (citing ptsd, dogs, kids, fire hazards—all valid) about the illegal fireworks being popped off. I’m not a fan, but have come to realize that there is no point since our city police are rather lax. Then, at other times of the year, people assume that the sounds they hear are gunfire. The other night, we were visiting family on a ranch and some went off hunting wild boar. You could hear the AR when they found them. To me, it didn’t sound the same as fireworks. Is there a difference? My hyper vigilance would like to know.
