The Mall of America has been an attraction and a focal point for locals and visitors alike since it first opened in 1992. There is a no-guns policy, but customers haven’t been subject to metal detector checks in most cases. The testing of a “weapons detection system” at one of the mall’s entrances was announced in October. Some shoppers at the suburban Minneapolis shopping complex ducked for cover and two people were injured during an apparent altercation on New Year’s Eve, prompting authorities to place the mall on lockdown in August.
