I have two questions on this matter:
1. Why wouldn't the teen just get back in his car and drive away to correct his "mistake" privately? My opinion is that honor is lost on the dishonorable, I'd sooner have run home with stomach flu "squitters" than let someone control my freedom.
2. If the teen was not a concealed carry permit holder (not subject to gun-free zoning laws—at least here in UT) and the firearm was in fact locked away from his immediate use, surely the most that he can get prosecuted for is a trespass infraction?
I don't get it.
