You may recall that the feds changed the law last year to allow firearms on Amtrak trains—provided you give the railway 24 hours notice and schlep your gats inside a locked container, checked-in at least 30 minutes before train departure. No carry-on firearms are allowed, regardless of CCW permits. Perhaps this post-train ride search was motivated by the TSA’s desire to find concealed carry weapons (CCW) concealed and carried by otherwise law-abiding citizens. Either that or they are incredibly stupid, intrusive, invasive and out-of-order. Literally. Here’s the videographer’s description of events . . .
The only bad thing on our trip was TSA was at the Savannah train station. There were about 14 agents pulling people inside the building and corralling everyone in a roped area AFTER you got OFF THE TRAIN! This made no sense!!! Poor family in front of us! 9 year old getting patted down and wanded. They groped our people too and were very unprofessional. I am all about security, but when have you ever been harassed and felt up getting OFF a plane? Shouldn’t they be doing that getting ON??? And they wonder why so many people are mad at them.
