    Yes, you read the subject correctly. If you carry a gun on amtrak, you must be locked in a box. Someone should file an injunction and have the law stricken as unconstitutional.
    Gays are prominent members of firearm rights, we do more via the courts, don't like it? Leave.

    Actually, this means you can carry on Amtrack.

    The traincar itself is a box.

    Hah. What if the person needs to use the loo? The person can't if they're forced to be locked in a box.

    Another indicator of the incompetence of this current gubmint,,Hahaha
    ‘‘Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.’’ Thomas Jefferson

    You can already legally carry on AMTRAK - in fact according to AMTRAK's posted rules on their web site, carry is not banned even by way of terms of cariage - only putting guns in luggage is banned.

    So this law is intended to allow 50 state carry as per transportation of firearms laws? I can see how when traveling you will be going though areas where you can neither OC or CC legally.

    No, FOPA stands by itself; this amendment to a larger bill just forces AMTRAK to allow checked guns in baggage.
