“gun fell and then it shot”

Article about a 6 yr old who brought a loaded firearm into school. It is claimed that the firearm fell and then fired.  I am very curious as to what type of firearm was involved in this incident.  Most modern firearms are engineered to be drop safe. A casual drop is unlikely to make a gun just “go off”.

This leads me to believe this was an older firearm, an heirloom, old revolver in a dresser drawer, etc.  And is a very good reminder of the importance of keeping your firearms under lock-and-key when not needed.
