Law student is stopped by police because he is carrying a firearm in public. The officer asks to see ID and questions the student but apparently the officer does not know that you cannot demand ID or detain somebody unless there exists reasonable suspicion that the subject has committed a crime or is about to commit a crime. "possession of a loaded firearm in a crowded place could not, by itself, create a reasonable suspicion´╗┐ sufficient to justify an investigatory detention "
