Kentucky’s Second Amendment Paradise

by M. Scott Mahasky | Politico Magazine  |  Published on October 24, 2016


When it started in the 1960s, the Machine Gun Shoot and Military Gun Show at Knob Creek Gun Range outside of Louisville, Kentucky, attracted only a handful of people. Today, the twice-yearly event draws about 13,000 spectators as they come to watch shooters fire fully automatic, military-grade weapons at downrange targets, instantly shredding propane tanks and cars. The event builds to a crescendo of fire and heat during Saturday’s “Night Shoot” (above) as range security officers outfit targets with explosives that detonate on impact. As voters prepare to go to the polls in an election in which gun rights have become one of the biggest dividers, these gun owners are doubling down on their rights—and, with a Hillary Clinton presidency becoming likelier by the day, taking a closer look at where they’ll take their fight for gun rights next.
