What was that "booom"?
How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?
Interesting day. Between the cannon and the guard eating fried chicken and throwing the bones in the bushes where I was sitting (I was turkey hunting...yeah, that's what I was doing).....My nerves were a mess.

Critters on the range I use have no issues with gunfire. I have punched paper with an AR over the heads of groundhogs and squirels. Just proves you can get used to anything. That range has been there for many generations of critters. That cannon was there before those guys started working there, hell, I think it was firing in 1966 when I went with my 4th grade class.

Saker: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVmu_nfpQd4 I'm in the gun crew, left side of the muzzle.
The Saker got down-checked last year, so the biggest thing they're firing at the moment is a Falcon. Saker = 6-pounder, approximately, and usually loaded with 12 to 24 oz of powder. Falcons are about 3-pounder size, load is 4 oz. What you were hearing was probably one of the .75 to .80 cals, with 100 grains of 3fg (Three guesses where my Nom de Web comes from).
The cat in front of the car hardly cared either!!
