    There should be a Nationally recognized CCW permit process in place for those truckers to protect themselves. Yes, perform the required background checks as required by law, but make it 50-state legal. They should be able to be "secure" in what for many of them is their home on wheels.

    Wouldn't it be nice if private citizens had the same rights?

    I can't imagine being an unarmed truck driver. Many of the industrial areas border shady parts of town.

    In the face of no permit, I'd have to come up with something outside the box!
    Judged by twelve or carried by six!

    Yep, exactly. When I was in college I carried despite the fact that I could get expelled (it wasn't illegal, just against school policy).

    I carried when I drove locally. It was my own truck and my life is worth more than any law a bunch of liberals made..
