The road can be a dangerous place for truckers. Between road-raging drivers, sketchy rest stops, and would-be criminals, many truckers face multiple life threatening incidents throughout the course of their careers.
A firearm is the obvious choice for self-defense, but many truckers hesitate to carry. The reason? The patchwork of concealed carry laws throughout the United States make it virtually impossible to carry a firearm across the country while remaining in compliance with the law.
But some truckers carry anyway—and for good reason. A survey conducted by Overdrive Magazine found that 73 percent of truckers have been in a situation in which they were unarmed but wish they were armed.

The House voted on Thursday to overturn a rule forbidding states from divesting taxpayer dollars from Planned Parenthood in what was President Obama’s parting gift to the nation’s largest abortion provider.
Issued by the Department of Health and Human Services shortly before Mr. Obama left office, the rule prohibited states from considering whether a clinic performs abortions in distributing Title X dollars, which are earmarked for family planning services.
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, said the passage of H.J. Res. 43 is another sign that the former president’s legacy on abortion is being “dismantled.”

HUM a $17M a year industry for NC — could these regulations means someone doesn’t think they got their “fair share”.
WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina regulators are starting a process that could limit how intensely shrimp boats can trawl coastal waters.
The Star-News of Wilmington reports (http://bit.ly/2m1FjD5) the North Carolina Marine Fisheries Commission decided Thursday to start the rulemaking process in an effort to save the young fish scooped up in their nets.
The decision comes despite opposition of the commission’s members representing commercial fishing operators.
The rules could eventually limit shrimping to three days on the Intracoastal Waterway and other estuaries and four days on the ocean within three miles of shore. David Knight of the North Carolina Wildlife Federation said that would improve the number and quality of shrimp as well as other commercial fish.
North Carolina fishermen landed about nine million pounds of shrimp in 2015, worth about $17 million.

Californians for Population Stabilization has put out a series of videos identifying amnesty sellouts. There are several featuring Arizona Senator Jeff Flake. This one cuts right to the chase:
The group’s Board of Directors issue a stern warning (video) regarding the threat posed by massive and uncontrolled immigration and the quality of life of all Californians Extrapolate this warning to include all Americans.
Read the press release accompanying the launch of this ad campaign. It’s titled, “Flake Continues Role as Critic, Impediment to Trump’s Immigration Agenda.”
CAPS Advisory Board includes Victor Davis Hanson, Ph.D., a Senior Fellow with the Hoover Institute and the author of the blockbuster 2003 book “Mexifornia,”— well over a decade old, but still relevant. This is the cogent essay, “Mexifornia, Five Years Later,“ printed in City Journal. After watching the Jeff Flake video exposé read the essay which Hanson subtitles, “The flood of illegal immigrants into California has made things worse than I foresaw.”
Grandstanding, longtime amnesty proponent, Jeff Flake not only refused to endorse the Republican nominee for president, he also made the rounds of liberal media outlets declaring he would not vote for Donald Trump. There is only one conclusion to draw: the iffy Republicrat gave his vote to Hillary Clinton. Keep that fact in mind when he appears on the Arizona ballot later this year.
