Can a computer pick out and identify guns directly from video footage, without the aid of a human?

The technology is based on scanning the pixels in the video, and narrowing down areas that seem to more closely resemble a gun, until they find a highly probable match. Interestingly, in several cases the computer misidentifies non-gun items as containing firearms, such as the armrests of some of the seats in the airport scene of the 1997 film Bean.
