MT’s Rehberg pushing for Amtrak gun law

Congressman Denny Rehberg wants a permanent law that will let Amtrak passengers to travel with guns.

Rehberg’s new bill stems from the appropriations process giving Amtrak riders the same rights as airline passengers. People who are flying can transport unloaded firearms in a securely locked container.

Rehberg says he expects the House will agree with Senate action in a spending bill for one year. But, the Congressman says there needs to be separate legislation like his to make it permanent.
