Amtrak allows secured firearms in baggage

By Bob Hallmark - bio | email

LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- You can now ride the rails across America with a firearm; Secured, of course.

Amtrak has a new baggage policy allowing passengers to bring unloaded firearms in checked baggage on trains within the United States.

The change falls in line with air travel policy that permits unloaded guns to be stored in locked baggage holds, with ammunition in separate baggage. The policy begins December 15th.
