States Rights or the Federal Government on Guns

It should be interesting to watch Senator Thune's amendment to the defense authorization bill this week. It would allow those allowed to carry guns in their states to carry guns across state lines into other states. Looks like a lot of Democrats are perplexed by this, trying to figure out what to do.

We confess a little confusion here since we are states' righters and believe states should control what happens in their state-not the federal government. But on reflexion, we also are strong supporters of the second amendment which we think trumps state laws in this case.

You don't have to worry about the federal government or states' rights when you have a liberal city council making criminals out of law abiding citizens by requiring them to be fingerprinted to sell Grandpa's old gun.
