WASHINGTON --- FOX News is reporting that a bill
signed by President Obama this week, which was intended to require Amtrak passengers
who want to bring a gun on the train to secure the gun, instead calls for the
passengers themselves to place themselves in secure boxes.

Officials of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
note that a certain type of such box is readily available.Each year in the U.S., some 30,000 Americans
who are killed with guns are placed in similar boxes.

Although the intent of the new law was clearly not to
require that gun owners on Amtrak be placed in boxes, for anyone relying on FOX
News’ interpretation of the law who wishes to secure such a box, the Brady
Campaign offers information on some box suppliers.

Walmart.

The bill was sent to the President with an apparent typo
that eliminates certain essential security provisions that gun violence
prevention advocates fought for, and instead replaces it with an unclear new
section, which FOX News claims requires passengers to be locked in boxes.
