The pilot obviously did a major no-no at some point, but that contraption is an ND just waiting to happen.

That is the most insanely badly engineered thing I’ve ever seen. A padlock THROUGH THE TRIGGER GUARD? Yes, if you get the padlock BEHIND the trigger, it will stop it from firing, but it’s far to easy to hit the trigger
If ya carry, ya carry. The less you have to handle the piece, the less chance of an ND/AD. Then complacency is an evil that must be faced more often than bad guys.
This poor guy is going to have to live down being the first AD because of the bag of snakes equipment he has been saddled with.

You have got to be kidding. How do they get it if they need it in a hurry?

Trigger locks on loaded weapons!?
Dumbest. Idea. Ever.
Or at least, right up there in the list.

Why not just CARRY the MF'er until the flight is done?
All these rules and regulations are going to bite us in the @55 unless SOMEONE just says ... "phuque U, @55hole" ... and just TAKES control.
(BTW ... TAKEing control is what THEY are doing.) And it is insidious by the WAY they are TAKEing.

Here's a picture of the holster / lock system they use.
You're kidding? That is the most pathetic, convuluted, stooopid setup I've ever seen. Who makes that thing anyhow?

What part of "don't apply a trigger lock to a loaded gun" does the DHS not understand.
Dellenger in his argument before the Supreme Court in the Heller case was claiming that there exists a trigger lock that can be applied to a loaded gun. Has anybody ever heard of such a thing?
This ridiculous arrangement looks like what was being described. And the negligent discharge was exactly what ought to be expected.
