Inside the black Mercedes SUV, officers found a cache of weapons and a small amount of marijuana, the Patrol said. A police dog searched the vehicle, finding numerous hidden compartments containing four rifles, nine handguns and a switchblade knife. Authorities also found a Taser and night vision goggles.
The vehicle also had flashing emergency headlights, a siren and a public address system, the Patrol said.
"Popper indicated to troopers that he had installed these items in his vehicle because (in the event of a natural disaster) he didn't want to be left behind"
One more time for those who don't read...he wasn't arrested for the guns.
As long as he had the appropriate licenses and was carrying them in the car according to the laws of the local jurisdiction then there is no issue with having 1 gun or 1000 guns in the car.
He got busted for doing 110mph which opened him up to the search based on probable cause which turned up the pot. Normal folks don't cruise down the highway doing 110 (I only do 90 here in ATL) so the cops had a reason to suspect he might have been up to something, into something, or on something and thus the search. The guns were never an issue but just add a funny twist to the story due to his crazy apocalypse reasoning behind it.
Edit: He wasn't driving, someone else was. He was a passenger in his own car.
