Your "checked firearms" program is blatantly ILLEGAL Amtrak.
The 2nd amendment is clear, the right to keep and bear arms shall NOT be infringed.
That goes SPECIFICALLY for ALL public transportation facilities in this country. As well, the TSA presence at more and more Amtrak terminals is blatantly ILLEGAL as well. TSA personnel searching passengers and luggage is a complete violation of the US Fourth Amendment.
On behalf of the American people, i hereby ORDER you to cease and desist from your crimes. Further, i DEMAND that AMTRAK file a multi-billion dollar lawsuit against the TSA for their willfull and malicious police state CRIMES and VIOLATIONS against the American people. The government is using the "threat" of terrorism to take away our fundamental freedoms and liberties as American citizens. We are turning into Nazi Germany. This is NOT acceptable and will be resisted by FORCE if need be.
You have lost my ridership AMTRAK until you STOP this insanity.
