"The sound of gunfire, off in the distance, I'm getting used to it now" Talking Head 2011

On the Seaway there is a section between Quebec, Ontario and New York State called 'Smugglers' Alley' - lots of heavily armed smugglers operate there - this is the sound of .30 or .50 calibre machine guns firing to welcome in the New Year - the lights you see are not muzzle flashes, just navigation buoys. There were times in the early 90s where you'd here this all the time, but now I only hear it on New Year's.
