This is what saved him.

"Mr Andreychenko was held at gunpoint by an off-duty fire fighter, who was legally carrying his own weapon, until police arrested him."

Had the police arrived and he hadn't been obviously restrained I reckon there's a pretty good chance they'd have shot him.
This after all is a place where the police famously shoot first and ask questions later.

Not just stupid, but a dangerous sociopath. I note that he's being charged with making a terrorism threat. Appropriate: after all what is "terrorism" but "spreading fear and terror amongst the general public". And what despicable timing! Hope they bang him up for a long stretch.

A social experiment, testing his right to bear arms - with an unloaded pistol maybe, but a loaded handgun and loaded automatic rifle, wearing armour - yeah, right

A stupid individual certainly, but IMO no more stupid than a society that thinks it appropriate to have a right to bear arms as part of their constitution.
