It is indeed very annoying how people call the police using words like "weapons", "gunshots", "firearms", "rifle" or even "explosives".
They dont know what they're talking about; when people hear a loud BANG they assume that this is the work of solid propellants. Most people dont know how loud compressed air can be, and also dont know the power of it. (Oh, its just air) Its ridiculous what people get into their heads, oh boy, people can be so dumb.
