Senate passes "Wicker Amendment" requiring that Amtrak let people be able to check guns on trains
This amendment only lets guns in as checked baggage, which is a long way from the way things used to be. How For some reason I don't think that the bad guys here would have followed a gun ban even if it had been in place at the time.
Among the "no" votes:
The Pryor and Specter votes seem particularly strange. Pryor might have revealed his true colors on the gun issue when he switched his vote back and forth on the Thune concealed carry amendment. Specter used to vote consistently in favor of protecting people's ability to own guns and now he is voting consistently the opposite way. It is a huge change that coincides with his switch from being a Republican to a Democrat.
