Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.

Hello Holly, either you are using the wrong nails, or the nailer's driver is worn, causing it to skip over the head of the nail. If this unit has a spring loaded "door" on the front of the nose, its possible the spring has lost its strength, allowing the nose to partially open during operation. Without knowing the brand and model of the nailer, I can only speak in generalities, but I would think the best solution is either the first two problems.

Here is the link but I copied the instructions here too
Loading Staples or Nails
Make sure there are no staples or nails jammed from previous usage by checking the handle operation.
CAUTION: IF A STAPLE OR NAIL IS JAMMED, POINT THE GUN AWAY FROM
YOURSELF AND OTHERS BEFORE OPENING THE TRACK AS THE JAMMED
STAPLE OR NAIL MAY BE FIRED OUT UPON OPENING
i) Point the bottom of the gun away from you and turn gun sideways.
ii) Turn gun up, grip track release buttons and push away to release, then slide the track out, as shown (fig. 1).
iii) Insert a strip of staples in the chamber with the legs pointing up (fig.1a). If nails are required, turn gun upside
down and tilt the gun away from yourself and load on the right hand side (as indicated on graphics at the
staple and nail exit) with point facing upwards (fig.1b) THE GUN MAY JAM IF NAILS ARE INSERTED IN THE
iv) Slide staple or nail track back into closed position - a click indicates that it is locked in position.
Your staple and nail gun is now ready for use.
