Revealing mistake: The majority of the Army rifles and all the machine guns are obvious props, incapable of even firing blanks. If you watch carefully when they're "firing" you can see that the muzzle flash is actually animated and no shell casings are coming out. The sound has been added in post production. This is most obvious when the general is firing a havy machine-gun (with no belt) at the saucer over the capitol. (00:55:05)
