According to the Oregonian, this idiot (pic) showed up for a traffic court case with a loaded 45 cal. handgun.
Grant H. Thomas claims, reports of shootings made him think, packing heat was appropriate. Apparently the court house near Beaverton, Oregon lacks metal detectors, but the gun was spotted by an undercover detective when the semi-automatic fell out of the waistband of his pants, and Mr. Thomas retrieved it and stuck it back in his pants while he was in the municipal parking lot. Mr. Thomas was able to get on the witness stand before security was able to react.
Oh, and when the police searched his car, which they are entitled to do pursuant to a lawful arrest they found a loaded AR-10, .308 caliber rifle.
