    Wow, traveling around the country meeting other LEOs? For a single cop with no family...

    Railroads should try to encourage more LEOs to travel by rail. Having the presence of the armed LEO is NOT what's important because terrorists will likely explode bombs on trains. What's important is having LEO passengers on board who (assuming survived) can bring some control and coordination over the massive chaos that will ensue while waiting for the on-duty first responders to get there.

    But of course the largest carrier in the country actually forbids us from carrying concealed on their trains...not that they do anything to stop or prevent it.

    Amtrak? I thought not too long ago they had changed that.

    Yes, Amtrak. You may have me there, though. I last remember reading about their policy over a year ago.

    A check of current policy appears to indicate that they now allow firearms in checked baggage with a policy similar to the airlines, but not as a carry-on.

I wanted to say something to him but I really dont think he would change anything so i didnt waste my time
