Most of the time there is a firing pin, which hits the back of a bullet when the trigger is pulled. The firing pin hits the back of the bullet and ignites the gunpowder inside of the bullet. The bullet then becomes a small unguided rocket and hits something in the direction the gun was aimed at.

No. Machine guns are fully automatic. With Gatling guns, you have put in bullets and crank at the same time but with machine guns, you have to put in bullets, place them on the ground and let them activate and they will open fire.
