A Virginia man convicted of carrying a loaded shotgun near the U.S. Capitol and hiding explosives in his truck has been sentenced to 22 years in prison. Michael Gorbey of Rapidan was arrested Jan. 18 while walking with a shotgun and three-foot-long sword near the Capitol.

At Friday's sentencing, Judge Gregory Jackson said it was "plain old dumb luck" that nobody was hurt.
