If "just like" with airlines, then CHL folks won't be exempt from anything.Just like checking them in with an airline.
Wonder if this effects CCW permit holders at all?
It's ludicrous in the first degree. It shows how controlling the autocrats really think they need to be, even for worthless, unjustifiable reasons. There is no social benefit obtained by such restrictions on the actions of upstanding people, and criminals will find away around the silly finger-waggling and signs anyway.
No. The gun will be in your checked baggage, and you won't have access to it.So if a terrorist hijacks the train,I must first unlock the case and get my gun out,then I gotta unlock a second bag and retrieve my ammo,then I gotta load my gun.Now I know why I don't ride the choo choo
Why they haven't placed a brick of C4 onto 1000 lines of track, by now, is beyond me. Easy as pie to disrupt the entire network.Amtrak:
Honest passengers are unarmed? Check.
Train runs through remote areas far from any law enforcement response and possibly even cellular reception? Check.
If I was a criminal/terrorist, I'd be drawing out some plans right now.
That is correct; the bill has to get through the House and His Barackness before Amtrak's policies will change.The title of this thread is "Amtrak now required to allow transport of firearms."
The linked item states that the Senate has so voted, but there is no mention of a House vote or a presidential signature.
