The literature says you can't, do they check or something?

I am thinking I should travel empty. Any other views?

Amtrak falls under the jursidiction of the federal government. They have their own real police force, but I am not sure what their jurisdiction is limited to. Its an interesting question, because the train falls under Amtrak's jurisdiction, but the tracks the trains ride on are the state's jurisdiction.

Most places are not checking, yet.

Conductor is not going to know unless someone points it out.

You will be in the shit if busted though, the po po will be called.

Can't say I blame you for wanting to. I know I would.

No CCW on Amtrak, regardless of state laws where you are, at least that was what I was always led to believe. Ask over at packing.org and you will get a lot of the same answers.

Rent a car, and carry

Having one in your luggage for your destination shouldn't be too much of a problem, IMO. Personally, I see no reason to physically carry while on a train. Jesse James ain't still alive, is he????

What? You can't even carry-on a laptop computer? That is what their regulations are implying. What a bunch of fucktards...
