    Student with gun arrested at Danville Community College

    Monday, Oct 13, 2008 - 08:37 PM


    DANVILLE -- Police say a Danville Community College student seen carrying a gun on campus has been arrested.

    The campus was placed on lockdown shortly after the incident was reported around 8:15 a.m. today, and it remained on lockdown until college officials were sure the suspect was in custody.

    City police say 18-year-old Bruce Wayne Elder was carrying two guns when he was apprehended on a street near the college. He faces charges of two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of alcohol by a minor.

    Another nut-job seeking infamy?? I'm surprised this wasn't the top news story for the day.

    Damn it this just cannot happen. Didn't the felon know that he is not allowed to have a firearm in a gun free zone????

    So if this whack job was not a whack job felon, and leaving the guns + booze stuff aside, what would the problem with open carry on a city street around a campus have been?

    Yeah, but that's only when he was "caught". Was he on campus and then left or was he never on campus but only walking by?

    He might have been a juvenile charged as an adult.

    I don't believe Community Colleges/University's do background checks.

    There are many ex-felons that attend or have graduated from college, many become lawyers.
    Judge Mathis for exampleis an ex-felon working in the criminal justice system, he went to a 4yr Univ.I believe.

    This isn't a slam on lawyers.

    [line]
    This is why those with CHP's should ignore the anti carry policiesuntil we can get them changed.



    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Maybe he was arrested for 'future crime'. Everyone knows there are an abundance of serial killers and hardened criminals with the middle name "Wayne".

    If he was on a public street and not campus, why was he detained to begin with? That difference could possibly determine an illegal seizure regardless of his convict status.

    Just a guesson my part, he was probably openly consuming his liquid courage.

    I said It was a guess on my part, but you must have missed that.
    If this makes you feel better.

    It does say he had alcohol on him, my guess he was opening consuming it.

    This is just conjecture on my part, since I wasn't there and the story doesn't give many details.

    § 18.2-388. Profane swearing and intoxication in public; penalty; transportation of public inebriates to detoxification center.

    If any person profanely curses or swears or is intoxicated in public, whether such intoxication results from alcohol, narcotic drug or other intoxicant or drug of whatever nature, he shall be deemed guilty of a Class 4 misdemeanor. In any area in which there is located a court-approved detoxification center a law-enforcement officer may authorize the transportation, by police or otherwise, of public inebriates to such detoxification center in lieu of arrest; however, no person shall be involuntarily detained in such center.

    (Code 1950, § 18.1-237; 1960, c. 358; 1964, c. 434; 1975, cc. 14, 15; 1979, c. 654; 1982, c. 666; 1983, c. 187; 1990, c. 965.)

    ok, must have missed that you were just guessing. Possession after interdiction and being under the influence are 2 different things. I thought perhaps there was another news article or something I missed...no matter.

    Or he could have been convicted but gotten probation. You don't have to actually go to prison to be a felon.
