Hello, 

My name is Christopher Davis and I’m a truck driver. Over the years there has been many incidents involving truck drivers being killed while on the road helping to keep America moving. How do we protect ourselves from violent criminals while doing our jobs trying to make a living and keep food on everyone’s table? There’s a saying “when seconds counts police are minutes away”. Depending on where you’re located this is in fact true. We drive through areas where officers can be 30 miles away.  In the heat of the moment you will not have the opportunity to call the police until it’s too late or someone finds you laying down on the side of the road dead or badly injured, so who do we turn to? As an American citizen it is our constitutional right to bear arms. On the federal level we should be allowed to carry a firearm on our trucks to protect ourselves, so we can arrive home to our families and loved ones. Just recently two truck drivers were tied up, tortured and fatally shot execution style in Florida. Those drivers will never see their loved ones again! As I drive across the United States I have to worry about being defenseless and being killed by a violent criminal. Being that we are essential to America this should be a right and all states should recognize this as a law.
