Yes, I remember it, and it was not AF 1! It was the aircraft carrying the SecState (Kissinger) during the Mid-East "shuttle runs". The Uzi fell out of an overhead and discharged if I remember right. (AT that time the SS was providing Kissinger's security. They no longer do that.)

It gets complicated, so don't feel too bad. And, like most government agency policies and procedures, it changes about 7 times daily. LOL! All Secret Service Special Agents will work some aspect of protection at some point in their careers, but it can come in many different forms and assignments.

The USSS is made up of human beings, just like any other group. There have been plenty of firearms related mistakes by their SAs as well...
About 5 years ago, a rash of USSS agent boo-boos with firearms was a cover story on Newsweek or US News and World Report or some similar magazine...
You can only really train people who WANT to learn. There are always some, even in "elite" units, who will meet the minimum standards because they have to, but will never take the lessons/training to heart. Then, they will screw up, because they didn't internalize the lessons, they just accepted them as necessary evils and then purged as much as they could as soon as they could. Sad, but true... though I'm not saying that was the case in this instance...
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
