    Voting records are easy to find. There are probably simpler methods. You can also look up things by the specific bill in question, or the amendment.

    In this case, here is what I did to find the details:

    1. Go to Senate.Gov and look up the recent floor activity. Be sure to keep this link in your browser as a "Favorite", or as a link on your computer. You'll want to come back to this page whenever you want to search for recent bill or voting details.

      Click on the <more> link to scroll through all the recent items that the Senate has addressed, using <search> in your browser to find "AMTRAK" for example.

    2. You'll find that there are two entries related to AMTRAK, but that the core bill and related amendment are: Senate Amendment 2366 to H.R. 3288. It's a funding bill for transportation, including AMTRAK.

    3. Search the rows of data that appear, one row for each action taken by the Senate. You're looking for the specific vote or roll-call in question, for S.2366 to H.R. 3288. In the left-most column you'll find a link that takes you to the voting detail for that action. In this case, link <00279> shows the voting as 68 yea, 30 nay, 1 abs. Also listed is the specific vote cast by each and every Senate member.

    Maybe they were. But if they are pandering, it is for votes. Which means that the best thing you can do is to let them know that you appreciate their vote. If it was pandering, it tells them that it worked, and that's good for us.

    The other thing that surprises me is all the comments about how Amtrak doesn't have the security infrastructure for checked firearms.

    So ask yourself, "how is the security infrastructure preventing undeclared & illegal weapons from being stowed in checked baggage?"

    How safe would you feel on the train now knowing the security is that poor?
    "Run for your life from the man who tells you that money is evil. That sentence is the leper's bell of an approaching looter. So long as men live together on earth and need means to deal with one another-their only substitute, if they abandon money, is the muzzle of a gun."

    Who is John Galt?

    I don't mind little to no checking for weapons being done. No frisking, searching or scanning is done for folks at the park, mall, bus stop, sports stadium, hotel, restaurant or any place else. What I do mind, though, is being forced to disarm combining with having to accept nearly non-existent security. THAT combination is what makes it a "fish barrel" -- both a draw to criminals and a risk for unarmed citizens. It's the perfect example of half-assed steps, and that's why it's dangerous.

    Thus: I don't do trains, in the U.S.
