Weapons in cab?

Hello all,

Zach here, (Zaxby) This is my first post on the forurm. However, I would like to thank all of the active members and staff of the forum for all of their valuable knowledge. I was able to find answers to some questions I had, without having to post anything. I am attending school next week, and I look forward to being an active member on the fourm. I will be sure to share my experiences as a new driver.

I was wondering if anyone had any opinions or experiences about firearms in the cab? I found a few threads on here about it, however, they were pretty old. I didn't want to drag up an old thread, and most of the responses didn't quite understand some of the laws in place. My main question is regarding company policies. Regardless if it's against a company's policy or not, what is the likely hood of your company searching the truck? That is my main concern. Shame you have to risk getting fired to uphold your second amendment rights. Some have said "your in deep crap if you go to a state or city where your CHP isn't valid, or simply not allowed will get you in trouble." That's simply not true, so long as you follow the law. There's actually a federal law that says local and state governments can't enforce laws regarding the transportation of firearms, so long as your just passing through the state. I would consider being a truck driver meets that criteria. Many states also consider your vehicle an extension of your home, so no permit needed (I have one anyway.)

Any personal experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
