Thread: CDL Drivers and CCW

  1. #11
    Sorry Bob and Wife, Think again. The fact still remains that interstate drivers are regulated by the Interstate Commerce Commission or whatever bureaucracy that has jurisdiction today. It's a federal thing like FAA and all the airplanes in the US including all those airline aircraft. They are regulated not by the States they fly over or drive through but by the nasty old bureaucrats of the DOT. Of course they have to follow local laws on top of all that. But the minute you cross state lines for a living in a truck you engage in interstate commerce and you march to a different drummer. But it is nice to hear the guys on the road are no longer at the mercy of thugs unless they choose it, at least in some states. But it must be a real task to obtain all of the state licenses for those that don't recognize yours. Bummer! Perhaps one could rent a PO Box at the border towns and store your pistol in it while passing states that don't cooperate till you pass that way again on the way back. (joke)


  3. The Federal Gun Free School Zones Act of 1995 makes it a federal felony for any armed person to drive within 1000 feet of the property line of any K-12 school in the nation, unless they have a carry permit physically issued by the State in which the school is located. Unfortunately, the Fed GFSZA95 does not recognize reciprocity agreements. Although this law effects everyone in the nation, it is especially important to truck drivers due to the logistical nightmare involved in obtaining a permit from every State they travel through. Anyone convicted of violating the Fed GFSZA95 faces up to 5 years in federal prison, and will lose their right to own a firearm for the rest of their life. In addition, CDL drivers will likely face other consequences that result from a criminal conviction.
