‘ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE’ AT AIPORT QUESTIONED BY TWITTER USERS

The official Atlanta Airport Twitter account issued a statement, and many users responded.

Several witnesses claim to have heard multiple shots fired, rather than the single accidental discharge reported by the airport.

“How do you explain the three pops we heard?” one user wondered.

Someone replied, implying that it could have been a repeat of the original gunshot.

“Why was there a gun in what is literally the busiest airport on the planet, and why was it ‘accidentally’ discharged?” another person wondered.

WHERE DOES AN ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE OCCUR?

When a gun is discharged (fired) at a time when it was not intended by the user, it is called an accidental discharge.

An accidental discharge can be caused by a flaw in the weapon’s design, whereas a negligent discharge can be caused by a lack of training or the owner’s negligence.

It’s possible that when a gun fires unintentionally, it’s due to a mechanical failure.

Firearms without proper safety features are an example of this…
