Hey Amtrak rider! Wake up, I'm talking to you! You can now transport 'em if you got 'em, "'em" being your Second Amendment-protected weapons. Via TravelMole:
The US Congress has ordered the reversal of a gun ban that had been in place on the government-owned railroad for nearly a decade.
Starting Dec.15, gun owners will need to let Amtrak know 24 hours in advance of their intention to bring firearms onboard. Unloaded guns will need to be packed in hard-sided containers. These will be placed in special storage lockers -- guns will not be allowed on trains that don't have checked baggage service.
The story of how we got that Second Amendment right recognized by the Supreme Court is told in my Christmas present ready book Gun Control on Trial.
