Current TV visits a machine gun shootout

This "pod" from Current TV, which aired last night, is basically a mini-documentary about a machine gun shootout in Kentucky that attracts thousands of people every year. So yeah, thousands of people shooting everything from military-quality machine guns to 50-caliber sniper rifles (so hardcore they're apparently illegal to use in warfare) to freaking cannons. Um, wow. I kind of can't believe these weapons are legal. Even in Kentucky. Watch, and be disturbed. (I mean, can you imagine using any of these weapons on a living thing? I know that's not the point, but it's awful to think about.)
