There is no federal law that prohibits drivers from carrying a firearm in a commercial vehicle, although each state has it’s own set of rules for carrying a firearm and like to overrule our second amendments which specifically state: The right to bear arms and shall not be infringed it does not say each state shall make up it’s own set of rules, many states and cities like Chicago, New York, Massachusetts, California and so on, many of these places have brainwashed their people.
It is very important that a truck driver has the right to protect himself while on the road.
They should not have to retrieve their weapon in a locked box or preload their firearm when harm comes their way, there may be no time, there are some carriers that do loads for the government that even allow Aa driver to a carrier Ar-15. In each State, they have also gone through extensive training.
Many mass shootings are from an AR-15, some even by people that had no criminal record, these types of guns should have a 10-day waiting period, this gives the person time to think of why they need a AR 15, while ultimately changing what the person might due with this gun during the 10 day waiting period. Although it might not stop every mass shooting but maybe prevent one, giving the person buying the AR-15 time to think! Since January there have been 135 mass shootings, we ask that you all pray for the victims and the violence to stop.
Some states may reciprocate your gun license, but others will not.
Past Legislation: That if one person has a gun license, they would be allowed to carry in all states but has not been approved by the senate but should be.
Company truck drivers:
Many trucking companies prohibit carrying a firearm in the truck, we do not recommend working for any of these trucking companies, especially the large carriers.
Think of it like this: say you have a gun permit to carry and your trucking company prohibits you from carrying a firearm, someone breaks into your truck while sleeping or you are on the job and you get killed, you could not carry because your company prohibited you from carrying, then your surviving family members may have a case against your company because they did allow you to bear arms according to the second amendment.
