This is an interesting story, first because it happened in that gun paradise North Dakota, but also because in the courthouse there the metal detector was only used on occasion. That's interesting.
Another fun aspect of this story is that the bad guy failed to kill or injure people, not because there were armed guards and police nearby, but because he couldn't work the action on the gun. If he'd known of the old "locked and loaded" theory of readiness, there's no telling what would have happened.
