It's sad that there are so many companies that don't want drivers to have protection. This story would have been different if the odds were even.

This is not a truck driver issue this is an American's rights issue. We should all be able to carry if we want, no matter where we are or what we're doing. Lots of bad people everywhere, anytime. Some people need them desperately due to their work or may find themselves in high-crime areas regularly.
Of course proper [regular] training, registration, licensing, and permitting goes without saying.
Drivers can carry there's no law against that. It just that most companies will fire you if they know you carry
If I had runs to inner Chicago I would just carry a bazooka and a Ma deuce. Camden, Nj/Philly areas of Boston, Memphis, New Orleans, Houston, and other places are well known for truck hijacking or robberies.
But the only thing ppl from your company will say is "call the police" well I'm sorry. Dead ppl can't dail 911 Mr Joe blow safety director.
now of course if it IS a self defense use of the gun, there is still NO way to foresee an amicable end to one's carrying a gun will go. then there are civil lawsuits for wrongful death.
yes, that's right, wrongful death. if YOU were to be killed by a perp, your family has the right to sue the accused for compensation.
so now, if YOU KILL the perp, and you are using a gun that is against the law to have or carry in THAT particular sate, YOU CAN BE SUED as well, and most likely will lose your job, and getting another job, may be tough as well.
so carry on this inane debate on carrying guns, legally or illegally, concealed or open....i'll live my life as i have always lived.
