Note:   Almost all fully automatic firearms made in this era were destined for the Sol Defense Militia. These would have come standard with an auto-safe re-aiming system. Even safer than the system on the BALEF, these firearms would always avoid hitting any human form, as the SDM was only intended to be activated if non-human attackers invaded Sol. Thus, James is probably only risking some ricochet shrapnel by running out into the hail of bullets.
