However, the video shows a shooting at a shooting range in Kentucky. 

An identical video with the caption “2015 Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot” Night Shoot Highlights “has been published on YouTube. Knob Creek Gun Range & Gun Store is an open-air shooting range in West Point, Kentucky, with a gun shop on site. The video dated April 14, 2015 shows a night shooting in a shooting range.
