  • Kerp this just means that the law abiding with cc permits will be able to have a firearm on a train now along with the criminals..I fail to see the problem.

  • I'll take train + guns over plane + wacky/creepy/gross security measures.

    I'm an automobile traveler myself.

  • Well...yaknow....nobody in my family or circle of friends even OWNS a gun and even so, they would never ever think about packing a gun in a suitcase.
    But now that I see that TN and Lorikeet think guns on trains are just great, I am even more sure that I am living right....
    I am thinking like a humane, non-aggressive human being.

    lol at the non aggressive part.

  • oh,but that's ok? No liquids over 3 oz on a plane but feel free to pack heat on the train!

  • It's not like they are packing on the train....though they should be able to. I have my ccdw license. If i wanna carry on the damn train i should be able too. But we don't have Amtrak here so it's kinda an argument not worth having, i'll never ride a train lol.

    Love it YSK. They had an array of pink handguns when I bought my 9mm, some of the proceeds did go to breast cancer awareness. I came close to getting one but I didn't.

  • Obviously sister they won't be any good for protection against any real threats from real criminals on the train..but at least law abiding citz can transport their firearms with them.
