-HEAD-

Sec. 5901. Findings

-STATUTE-

Congress finds that -

(1) the distribution of goods and services to consumers in the

United States requires the free flow of currency, bullion,

securities, food stamps, and other items of unusual value in

interstate commerce;

(2) the armored car industry transports and protects such items

in interstate commerce, including daily transportation of

currency and food stamps valued at more than $1,000,000,000;

(3) armored car crew members are often subject to armed attack

by individuals attempting to steal such items;

(4) to protect themselves and the items they transport, such

crew members are armed with weapons;

(5) various States require both weapons training and a criminal

record background check before licensing a crew member to carry a

weapon; and

(6) there is a need for each State to reciprocally accept

weapons licenses of other States for armored car crew members to

assure the free and safe transport of valuable items in

interstate commerce.

If an armored car crew member employed by an armored car company

-

(1) has in effect a license issued by the appropriate State

agency (in the State in which such member is primarily employed

by such company) to carry a weapon while acting in the services

of such company in that State, and such State agency meets the

minimum requirements under subsection (b) of this section; and

(2) has met all other applicable requirements to act as an

armored car crew member in the State in which such member is

primarily employed by such company,

weapon to which such license relates and function as an armored car

crew member in any State while such member is acting in the service

of such company.

in weapons safety and marksmanship during the current year from

a qualified instructor for each weapon that the crew member
