This is why it is important to remain silent when approached by law enforcement. Oh yeah, and don't be stealing medical supplies.

He didn't need to tell the officers that the gun was in his car.

CCW holders must announce that they are carrying when approached, but the weapon in the car was not a concealed weapon unless he was in the car.

Additionally, without a warrant, the officers would have needed his permission to search had he not given them probable cause by telling them the weapon was there.

He should:

1) Not steal.
2) Know his rights.
3) Exercise his rights.

Too stupid to own a gun.

That aside, the prohibition against a weapon in the car is really stupid and should be amended.

The law is clear. No weapons on campus. He broke the law. He has to pay the price. What is next? we should let rapists carry guns? That seems like what you gun nuts are advocating, just don't admit it and it is OK.
