As an interstate truck driver, the importance of this bill is undeniable to me. As a permitted concealed carrier in the state of New Hampshire (even though I do not need to be permitted), I am trusted by law to take that responsibility seriously and use my right to self defense within the letter of the law. That same expectation should be held nationwide, and particularly when it comes to truck drivers. The amount of legal hoops we need to jump through just to carry adequate protection is asinine. The value of our cargo is nothing to scoff at, and we are routinely robbed and attacked all over the country. This bill would not only improve the quality of life of trusted gun owners nationwide, but the lives of tens of thousands of truck drivers or more.
