SPARKS, Nev. -- Authorities say five people remained unaccounted for following a fiery crash involving a big rig and an Amtrak train in the Nevada desert, but investigators say they've yet to find any more bodies in the wreck that left six dead.
Reversing a near 10-year ban, Amtrak will allow passengers to bring guns on most trains starting Dec. 15.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Reversing a near decade-long ban, Amtrak will allow passengers to bring guns on most trains starting next month.
The change, pushed by gun-rights advocates and ordered by Congress, aligns Amtrak's firearm policy with air travel rules that allow unloaded guns to be stored in locked baggage holds.
Federal Homeland Security officials on Monday said they are OK with guns being on trains as long as security protocols are enforced.
