Federal laws prohibiting weapons in commercial vehicles?
Find answers to your legal question.

Federal laws prohibiting weapons in commercial vehicles?

Context is 18 wheel trucks, interstate commerce, DOT, FMCS, Title 18, or any Federal law prohibiting or regulating carrying of firearms in the big trucks. Can you provide the actual law # so I can look it up? Thanks
(Yes I realize each State will have their own laws.)
Additional Details
This is not a 2nd Amendment issue since by volunteering into a regulated enterprise (class A license (CDL), engaging in interstate commerce, etc) one may have waived some rights and become subject to laws not applicable to the general public.


The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration governs the conduct of commercial motor vehicles nationwide.




Sec. 926A. Interstate transportation of firearms

Notwithstanding any other provision of any law or any rule or
regulation of a State or any political subdivision thereof, any person
who is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from transporting,
shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a
firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully
possess and carry such firearm to any other place where he may lawfully
possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the
firearm is unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any ammunition being
transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the
passenger compartment of such transporting vehicle: Provided, That in
the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver's
compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked
container other than the glove compartment or console.

So, it looks like you can legally carry a gun, but no trucking company on the planet would let you keep your job if you were found to have it.

Weigh the need for the gun against the need for the job.

I do not know of a federal law that prohibits or regulates what kind of weapons can be carried in a commercial vehicle.

Do not listen to what any nay sayer or brain washed clown has to say on this issue. The constitution of the US gives -everyone- the right to bare arms. That's all there is to it. The rest of the add-ons, locally, county, state and federally to this idea that suggest you may not carry any type of weapon is unconstitutional and unamerican. You MUST carry a weapon, and all those throughout history who have failed to do so have been exterminated by those who do bare arms. This is survival of the fittest. Our wise founding fathers had this same issue arise before that wrote our constitution as it has been in some many nations before and after ours. Once the masses lose their guns and live in fear, they are then exterminated and lost. German, korean, russia, china and many more have suffered from this frame of mind, do not let it happen to you and your brothers. http://www.geocities.com/LadyLiberty_1776/RightBareArms.html Read this website, and many others, on the facts of how throughout history men and women have been disarmed and then exterminated by the people who promised you 'safety'. The only person who will keep you and yours safe is you, get guns, get bullets and keep your freedom or die in the seat of your truck.
