Typo in Law Establishes Mandate to Lock Gun-Toting Train Passengers in Boxes
Because of a typo, President Obama signed a bill into law Wednesday that requires passengers who carry firearms aboard Amtrak be locked in boxes for their journeyThe bill text was correct when the House approved the legislation last week. The Senate followed suit Sunday, but somewhere along the line, the language that referred to putting the guns in locked boxes morphed into stuffing "passengers" into locked boxes.It's also clear that Congress needs adult supervision. I look forward to hearing how this law is enforced...It's clear the typo alters the legislation's mandate. But no one quite knows the origin of the mistake.
