Trucking Industry group Small Business in Transportation Coalition (SBTC) (SmallTransportation.org) has introduced Michael's Law, which would allow truckers to carry firearms nationwide. The law is named after 31-year-old truck driver Michael Boeglin, who was brutally murdered, shot to death five times on June 26, 2014. The assailant, who was never caught, then lit Mike's Freightliner truck on fire with him in it. Mike had been waiting outside a shipper at a nearby abandoned gas station because the corporation, like many, forbid drivers to wait for the load on their property. He left behind his wife Ashley who was four months pregnant with their first child. (The family set up a page here with more details about this tragic case.)
The NRA has shockingly opposed and worked against MICHAEL'S LAW, the straightforward, very simple 136-word proposal. (Gee wonder why?) The NRA has been rightly derided as a sellout organization for years by gun rights advocates. A google search of the term NRA IS A SELLOUT garners 134,000 results. You be the judge.
[LibertyFight.com notes: I fully support and endorse SBTC, and am a member of that organization. I also support Mike's law to allow truckers engaged in interstate commerce to carry nationwide.

Small Business in Transportation Coalition Challenges the National Rifle Association to Protect and Promote Truckers' Gun Rights
"Mike's Law is the back door to national reciprocity for all Americans."
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) October 26, 2015
The Chairman of the Small Business in Transportation Coalition ("SBTC") issued a bold statement today challenging the National Rifle Association to protect and promote the Second and Fourteenth Amendment Rights of Americans working in interstate commerce to be able to carry firearms for self protection nationwide. SBTC Chairman James Lamb asked the NRA to support the SBTC's proposed bill entitled "Americans Working in Interstate Commerce Protection Act," (commonly referred to as "Mike's Law" named after an over-the-road truck driver named Michael Boeglin who was murdered and burned in his truck on June 26, 2014), which calls for the creation of a new business carry firearms permitting program for Americans working across state lines.
"We understand the NRA has been asking members of Congress that we have approached not to sponsor the Mike's Law bill and support their national concealed carry reciprocity bill instead. We would respectfully request the NRA reconsider their position as we believe our bill is a stepping-stone to national reciprocity. Whereas the NRA bill could be challenged on 10th Amendment "states' rights" grounds, our bill is firmly grounded on the Commerce Clause. Mike's Law also invokes the 14th Amendment's "equal protection of the laws" guarantee in that truckers should receive the same right to possess firearms while they sleep in their trucks as the majority of Americans, who sleep in residential buildings," SBTC Chairman James Lamb said today.
Lamb's Petition to Congress has been signed by approximately 11,000 Americans so far who are in favor of a business carry permit that allows Americans working between states to carry firearms concealed under Federal authority, in accordance with the government's power to regulate interstate commerce under the United States Constitution.
"U.S. Senator Marco Rubio has personally expressed to me he is in support of Mike's Law and even indicated he would sign it into law if elected president. And we believe once Mike's Law is passed and signed into law, the NRA could seek it to be extended to all Americans who "engage" in any form of interstate commerce, including as consumers, on 14th Amendment grounds. Mike's Law is the back door to national reciprocity for all Americans," Lamb added.
Lamb indicated he hopes on behalf of nearly 9 million Americans who work in the transportation industry, many of whom are NRA members, that the SBTC would hear from the NRA that they have decided to support Mike's Law and stand up for truckers' gun rights.
"There is also the complication that truckers are constantly going onto the property of multiple shippers and receivers. All of those industrial customers have anti-gun and workplace violence policies that forbid, (in many jurisdictions by force of law), these hard-working citizens from being on the customer's property while armed. As another complication, most trucking companies have anti-gun policies that forbid their drivers from carrying weapons in their company-owned trucks. As a result of this discrimination, many in the trucking industry are introducing "Mike's Law." It's a call for a nationwide federal firearms reciprocity for those who are professionally engaged in interstate commerce. It's named for Michael Boeglin who was shot and his body was found in the sleeper of his burned-out truck. By the way, another driver was found shot in the face this week after an attempted robbery. Current laws and company policies left him defenseless and dead. Disarmament isn't the answer.
Here is the podcast featuring James Lamb with Allen and Donna Smith discussing Michael's Law.

"The importance of 'Mike's Law' and the CDL driver"
Mike's Law bill for Americans working in interstate commerce, protects and promotes the Second and Fourteenth Amendment Rights of Americans working in interstate commerce, allowing them to be able to carry firearms for self protection nationwide. Many Professional drivers carry legally, having their concealed carry permit from their home state. But many times the issue comes up where a drivers' home state carry permit is not acknowledged in another state. It can be confusing as there are state reciprocity laws, and they are complicated, especially in states such as NY, NJ, and Illinois. Here is an example of how Concealed Carry Permit Reciprocity Maps
Mike's Law would set up an EXTRA, OPTIONAL permitting system that overrides anti-gun states on the basis of Federal power which regulates interstate commerce. So for example, if you work in interstate commerce, and you are traveling through New York and law enforcement asks to see your state permit, you get to say "Aha, I have a Mike's Law Federal permit" and that trumps their state laws.
