People need to be educated on the topic of Commercial Truck Drivers that carry…
Would love to see an article in Concealed Carry…note: I do love our USCCA Concealed Carry magazine…Tim
Maybe @dawn can get it on the schedule…?
It’s coming… Sooner rather than later, but I don’t have an exact date yet.
There is part 1 of 3 or 4 in the current Concealed Carry Magazine beginning in page 50 titled “Road Work.”
The important thing for drivers to know is that there are no federal prohibitions against truckers carrying but all state laws still apply.
They put a great article in our magazine
You would be shocked at how many drivers I run across that think you cannot have a firearm in your truck

I’ve been driving trucks for over 23 years and I carry daily for my protection and have been trying to educate drivers as I drive my daily route through Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama on the laws pertaining to carrying in different states (reciprocity agreement) but that it’s not illegal for you to carry a firearm in a Commercial Vehicle as long as you can legally get a gun and a carry permit.
