Sounds like the LEO vacated the area until backup came. I think it would have been reasonable to shoot the guy trying to free the shooter. I'd hate to shoot the dog by accident but an active shooter takes priority. She should have been searched and maybe she was but also maybe she had the 40 well concealed in a certain part of the female anatomy that would certainly lead to a charge of sexual assault if a weapon were not found. Certain crevices are difficult to search in a cursory search over outer garments. Maybe LEOs should have hand held magnetometers for such issues.

Chief Justice John Roberts : "I don't see how you can read Heller and not take away from it the notion that the Second Amendment...was extremely important to the framers in their view of what liberty meant."
He was assiged to transport a TDO patient from one "secure" faculty to another.
Picking up the patient from a "secure" medical faculty, he didn't do a search.
The patient later shot himself at the second "secure" mental faculty.
It all fell on the Deputy -- lost job, sued by the family of the patient, etc -- albeit the actual shooting/death didn't occur while in his custody.
Never heard of any repocussions for the failed "security" at the first or second faculty.

I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
