How does having one gun and a knife equate to an infatuation with guns?

Poor journalism.

Also... A locking knife is illegal? Is it because it was a school campus?

In NC, your vehicle is your personal property, regardless of where it is parked.



No it is a class I felony to have a weapon on school grounds.

Why doesn't he just keep a bottle of Jack in the car, from what I'm told drunk drivers are just as deadly as psychos with AR-15s.

"possess or carry" is a grey area...

This is especially true with the changes made in 2011 for the Castle Doctrine...

Your vehicle, regardless of where you are parked, is your property...

I can see where you're coming from, and I understand completely... But, I've asked several law enforcement officers and court officials about such a situation (not necessarily a school campus, but similar places where weapons are banned) and as long as it is locked in your personal vehicle, it would be hard to charge you with anything.

If you think about it... What situation would lead you to even being found in possession? Letting folks know it is there? Pulling it out and showing it off? If you do stuff like that, you deserve anything that comes your way from a legal standpoint.

If your vehicle is searched for another legal reason, and a weapon is found, charges could be filed.

What is a legal reason without probable cause?

We had a case recently here where someone was suspected of theft and the vehicle on campus was searched, with probable cause, for stolen property. A weapon was found in the vehicle and a charge of possession on school property was filed.

That's my point, though. Smart people don't give people probable cause to search their vehicle.

I understand what you're saying, but I'm just saying it can happen, and it doesn't have to be that you're stupid enough to tell somebody or show somebody. It's the same as with any contraband ... you can keep it locked up and never get caught ... until for some reason, you are found out and charged.
