    I have an Ohio ccw and my PA one. Is it legal to carry in a commercial vehicle?

    That will vary depending on what states you are traveling through. Check the legislation for the different states as they can be very different.

    To my knowledge there is NO law in any state prohibiting commercial carry... Some states just prohibit carry period. The fact that you are in a commercial vehicle with a CDL has nothing to do with it one way or the other.

    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Check your employer's policies regarding firearms, assuming that they have one. My experience is that if they have one, they prohibit them! It may not be illegal, but they could terminate your employment as a result.

    As long as you have your Concealed Carry License you can carry inside any vehicle in Ohio. If your company policy says you cannot carry you may get in trouble with them. Im not sure about PA though.
