"Loose cannon" nghĩa là gì?

"Loose cannon" = đại bác (bắn) bừa bãi -> nghĩa là người có thiên hướng hành động khó lường/không thể đoán trước được hoặc rất dễ mất bình tĩnh và cáu bẳn.

Ví dụ
Our Second Amendment (Tu chính án thứ Hai) is a huge fly in that particular vat of ointment. Worldwide, the U.S. is basically the only loose cannon left on the deck, having free ownership (quyền sở hữu) of guns. The guns and our borders (biên giới) must be removed for a coming “one-world government.”

The very antithesis (phản đề) of her predecessor (người tiền nhiệm), SA’s Public Protector has spent all her ammunition (đạn) on the ANC’s reformists and is now a loose cannon rolling around dangerously on the ship of state. Called dishonest (không trung thực) by several judges whose rulings (quyết định) have painted her as bordering on incompetent, she should now resign (từ chức) or face impeachment (luận tội), says Paul Hoffman, SC, the Founder of Accountability Now.

He is only following the policies (chính sách) set down by Trump and the attorney general (tổng chưởng lý). This humanitarian crisis (khủng hoảng nhân đạo) would not be going on if that border wall nonsense (vô nghĩa) would go away and smarter thinking applied, which Trump lacks. He is a loose cannon that needs to have the firing mechanism removed and concrete poured down the barrel.
